LifeSight Ireland is WTW Ireland’s defined contribution master trust pension solution for employees and employers

03/11/2023 – LifeSight Ireland Trustee DAC (LITD), trustee to WTW Ireland’s defined contribution master trust pension solution for employees and employers, has announced the appointment of Julie Davenport as Independent Director.

In her new role, Julie will join as the LifeSight Ireland master trust continues to grow, with €2 billion committed to be invested before the end of 2023. The LifeSight master trust enables employers to benefit from high-quality, lower risk, market-competitive pension provision without the governance burden for trustees. LifeSight uses simple-to-use online and mobile support tools as well as global and local experts to actively improve members’ retirement outcomes.  

With over 40 years of experience in the financial services industry in Ireland and the US, Julie has held senior executive positions in large multinational organisations with roles in technology delivery, middle and back office operations, and risk and compliance. With extensive experience in large scale technology programme management, service delivery and strategic planning and organisational development, Julie has served on multiple boards. 

Commenting on the appointment, Maria Quinlan Head of LifeSight Ireland, said: “This is an important appointment for LifeSight Ireland, and I am delighted to welcome Julie to the team and the existing independent trustee company. Julie has a proven track record and key insights in improving members’ engagement, understanding and retirement outcomes in Ireland.

“Independence is a strong part of our proposition, which is reflected heavily in our investment approach and advice to members, and is now enhanced by the appointment of further independent directors.” 

Speaking about her new position, Julie Davenport said, “One of the key things that attracted me to LifeSight Ireland was their commitment to providing independent investment advice at a competitive price and scale. My main priorities are enhancing the relevance of the decision making and evaluation tools for members, providing transparency on costs, and continually focusing on enhancing member’s ability to achieve appropriate retirement outcomes.”
