Huntswood Outsourcing appoints senior consultant

Compliance outsourcing provider Huntswood Outsourcing Solutions has appointed Richard Pike as senior consultant.

In his new role in Huntswood&#39s business development team, Pike will focusing on growing business within the life and pensions market, whilst further developing Huntswood&#39s mortgage proposition. Pike joins Huntswood from Marlborough Stirling, where he held the position of business development manager and previously as consultant working on the firm&#39s mortgage software systems and outsourcing proposition.

David Brownlow, chief executive of Huntswood, says: “Regulation is becoming more and more a part of the financial services industry, with many companies struggling to comply with the existing pensions regulation of N2 and few preparing fully for the forthcoming mortgage regulation of N3.

“Richard&#39s appointment highlights our commitment to these sectors of the industry, as outsourcing compliance work in these fields continues to grow. For companies that wish to save on costs and concentrate on core business processes, outsourcing to a reliable and established company, such as Huntswood, is becoming the preferred alternative to long-term expenditure on staff and infrastructure.”
