Pension risk transfer provider Legal & General Retirement America appointed Anisha Gangwani as its new CIO, effective immediately, a spokesperson for the firm tells CIO. Gangwani will be based in the firm’s Connecticut office as it continues a buildout of its pension de-risking services in the U.S.

Prior to her appointment as CIO, Gangwani was the head of investment business at Legal & General between 2019 and 2024, based in London, and was previously an international investment strategy manager at the firm. Previously, she was the head of illiquid investments at Direct Line Group.

The pension risk transfer market set a record year for transactions in 2023, a trend that could continue into the first quarter of 2024 as more corporations consider what to do with their pension funding surpluses.
