Mark Willis : Trustee - National Counties Building Society Pension Scheme
Through a number of roles at Nationwide Building Society, Mark was responsible for Treasury and Group Risk Management. These included hedging of income and market value risks across the group balance sheet, investments in portfolios of credit securities and private equities, and funding and liquidity practices. As Head of Market Risk from 2006, responsibilities included overseeing risks arising from the Nationwide Pension Fund, which he joined as trustee in 2009. Mark has found his experience of risk practices and financial products to be very relevant to the investment strategies and LDI considerations for pension schemes. Previously, Mark served as Manager, Financial Planning with SGWarburg Group plc, as Corporate Executive with Tullett & Tokyo Financial Services Ltd, and as Assistant Manager with Peat Marwick Mitchell & Co.
