Jit Parekh joins Aon as a partner in the UK DC team

LONDON, 17 January 2024Aon plc (NYSE: AON), a leading global professional services firm, today announced that Jit Parekh has joined the firm as a partner in its UK defined contribution (DC) team.

Jit Parekh has advised trustees and corporates for over 12 years. He joins Aon from Schroders Solutions where he initially headed the DC team and was responsible for both advisory and fiduciary DC clients. He then moved into a wider role covering proposition development and strategic opportunities across DC and defined benefit schemes, both in the UK and globally. He started his career at WTW as an investment consultant, before moving to Isio where he focused on DC opportunities, including DC trust and master trust clients.

Ben Roe, senior partner and head of DC consulting at Aon in the UK, said:

"As DC pensions become the main retirement vehicle for the UK population, we are inevitably seeing expansion in the market, requiring fresh solutions and thinking to build a more resilient workforce.

"Jit Parekh has joined us at this key time in the market’s development. I'm sure our clients will soon be benefiting from his wide and excellent knowledge and experience."

Jit Parekh, partner in Aon’s DC team, said:

“The DC market continues to grow and evolve at pace. However, there remains a real issue around retirement income adequacy. It is therefore critical that corporates and trustees look to deliver strong outcomes for members.

“I’m joining a market-leading team at Aon which is strongly positioned to help clients make better decisions on these challenges – and I’m looking forward to building on the team’s successes in driving best-in-class investment solutions.”
