Redington provides capital markets and actuarial expertise to defined benefit pension schemes and insurance companies.
Named after the visionary actuary Frank Redington, the developer of Immunisation Theory, Redington was founded in May 2006 by Dawid Konotey-Ahulu and Robert Gardner.
The significance of Immunisation Theory for Redington is that Dawid and Robert were, in their previous roles, the first investment bankers to begin systematically engaging with pension clients on the topic of risk management. In 2003, after conducting a full and rigorous asset and liability profiling and sensitivity analysis, they helped implement the first full Liability Driven Investment (LDI) transaction for a FTSE 100 Defined Benefit pension scheme, Friends Provident.

Since then, LDI solutions have become commonplace within the pensions industry; indeed, they are almost universally accepted as part of a prudent investment strategy.
Helping clients to hedge their risks remains one of our core offerings, and a service that we can confidently offer as veterans of the process.
Redington has a well diversified client base and has received widespread acknowledgement from the pensions industry 'for its proactive, innovative and dynamic approach'.
