CEO, Invensys Pension Scheme
Robin Claessens is CEO of the Invensys Pension Scheme, a major U.K. corporate defined benefit scheme. He joined IPS in October 2008. Although he is based in London, with a focus on investment and risk management, he is also responsible for the 17-person administrative office based in Newcastle. Prior to joining IPS, Claessens spent more than eight years at Goldman Sachs, working in its London offices in the Corporate Pensions Advisory Group. He advised corporations and their pension funds' trustees on the design of their pension risk management framework, its implications on the corporate finance and capital structure and the development and execution of risk-mitigating structured solutions.
