RWC nabs PwC veteran Cressida Williams


RWC Partners has appointed Cressida Williams as its new chief financial officer.

She joins from PwC where she has worked since 1998, including as financial controller and chief operating officer for the insurance and investment management assurance division.

RWC has also promoted Joydeep Lahiri as head of performance, risk and attribution. He worked at Russell Investments before joining RWC at the end of 2015.

The pair replace Gemma Bainbridge and Bob Ritchie, who have left the business.

Chief executive Dan Mannix says: “We have seen both significant growth in our organisation and rapid change in our industry over the last three years. 

Mannix adds: “We see increasing opportunity to add operational alpha on top of the quality of the investment services we provide as clients look to reduce costs and pass on added value to their clients.
