Esther Hawley

Esther is a Principal at Barnett Waddingham and specialises in providing investment advice to trustees of DC pension schemes, both single and master trust.  She is on a personal mission to improve what retirement looks like, but believes that the industry must tackle broader issues, including a much deeper understanding of ESG and climate change risks, to achieve this.  She has co-authored the IFoA’s updated guide on “Climate Risk: A call to action for Actuaries working in Defined Contribution Pensions” and hopes this is of use and help to others.

Esther feels privileged to be able to balance making time for her two young daughters alongside her career.  This hinges on the support of a fantastic team at work and equally fantastic husband at home.  In between everything she tries to squeeze in a bare-minimum of keeping fit, before curling up on the sofa with a good book.
