  • Dalriada Trustees (“Dalriada”), one of the UK’s leading independent professional pension trustee firms, today announces the appointment of Shehzad Ahmad as a senior professional trustee.

    Shehzad joins Dalriada from Ross Trustees, a professional trustee and pension services firm, where he was a Trustee Director and was responsible for managing schemes ranging from £1 million to more than £3 billion in size.

    During his time at Ross Trustees, Shehzad also worked as Head of Professional Corporate Sole Trusteeship and Risk Transfer. In this role, he was instrumental in implementing the Association of Professional Pension Trustees’ (APPT) Code of Practice, which he co-authored.

    Shehzad has a broad range of pensions industry experience, which includes journey planning and leading restructures, and has also worked on cases with regulatory oversight, including those with in-depth and complex funding negotiations.

    Commenting on the appointment, Chris Roberts, Managing Director of Dalriada, commented: “We are delighted to announce Shaz will be joining Dalriada as a senior professional trustee.  The needs of our clients are currently evolving at pace, and attracting market leading trustees, like Shaz, gives us new perspectives and enhances our experience pool.  We look forward to working with him to further develop our London presence and to deal with the complexities of the evolving market.”

    Shehzad Ahmad commented: “I am extremely pleased to be joining Dalriada, and was particularly attracted by the firm’s collaborative and integrated team-based approach to trusteeship, which utilises the unique technical expertise and professional background of each individual trustee. At a time of great change for schemes, I look forward to building upon my previous experience to deliver the best outcomes for both clients and members.”
