Jim (Zichao) Wang
I enjoy analyzing problems in a mathematical way. From optimization to efficiency improvement, I always want to make things simple into a mathematical model.
After graduating from the University of Oxford, MMath Mathematics and Statistics, I spent 4 years at Mercer in their FSG/SSG team, where I became a CFA Charterholder before coming to Redington. Since joining Redington’s ALM team in 2018, the majority of my time is spent modelling our clients’ strategies. I’m also involved with streamlining our internal LDI benchmark process, PPF levy calculations process and am on our Responsible Investments team.
A high level explanation of my role is that it involves modelling pension schemes’ assets and liabilities to provide risk analysis and investment strategy advice to clients, to help them achieve their goals. I have a degree in Mathematics from Cambridge and am CFA qualified. I am involved in several firmwide initiatives, including the FFS Committee, Acorns Team, hiring, training and L&D projects.
I joined Redington in September 2016 as a graduate on the ALM team. Prior to that I’ve had a PhD dgree in Actuarial Science from Cass.
As part of the Client Solutions team within ALM, my role is to provide investment strategy and risk management advice and analysis to clients. I joined Redington as a graduate following completion of a degree in Mathematics with Economics, and am currently studying towards becoming a CFA charterholder.
My role involves producing analysis for both pension scheme and wealth management clients to guide and support our investment strategy and risk management recommendations. Part of my role involves building systems and templates to ensure that the ALM team can efficiently produce analysis for our clients.
Senior Vice President
I joined Redington’s ALM team in 2013. I specialized in systems development and helped build out our in-house analytics and risk software. In 2018 I moved to our technology team to be a product owner for our software platform ADA.
I enjoy using my numerical skills to provide risk management and investment advice to a wide range of clients. I joined Redington’s graduate scheme in 2020 after completing a Masters’ degree in Mathematics at university and am currently studying towards becoming an Actuary.
Co-head of ALM
Risk analysis is not a goal in itself, it’s only ever a tool. My role is to design focused tools to answer the right questions and draw out the salient points. What those questions are can vary across even superficially similar clients.
My role involves providing risk management and investment strategy analysis to both pension schemes and insurance companies. I have a Bachelors’ degree in Actuarial Science from LSE and a masters’ degree from Oxford, and am studying towards actuarial qualification.
Head of Client Solutions, ALM
It’s hard to believe I’m in my 9th year at Redington but I’ve really enjoyed my time here, mainly because every year is a different challenge! I now co-head the ALM & Investment Strategy team and my focus is on making sure we help to deliver outstanding advice and client solutions, based on sound analysis of their problems. Before Redington, I worked in Investment Banking at HSBC for 4 years and it was quite a different experience!
I joined Redington in September 2017 as an Associate on the ALM team. Prior to that I have experience working in another investment consulting firm, a large institutional pension fund and a general insurance company. My time at Redington has been focused on quantitative analysis and strategic investment advice for several institutional investors, and the odd game of table tennis!
