Zuhair Mohammed appointed as LCP’s Head of Investment
16 November 2022
Zuhair Mohammed has been named as the new head of LCP’s Investment practice. Zuhair joined the firm five years ago and has over 30 years of experience in investment consulting and fund management. He has vast UK and global experience advising DB, DC, insurance and charity clients on investment matters.
LCP’s 164-strong, award-winning investment team has clients across the pension and broader global institutional market. The team has a reputation for clear advice underpinned by cutting edge technology and a growing manager research team with particular focus on private markets and responsible investment.
Zuhair takes over from Clay Lambiotte who has led the team for seven years of strong growth. Clay will continue in his role as a Partner at LCP and lead on certain key initiatives, including helping the firm to continue diversifying into new investment areas as well as retaining responsibility for high profile pension clients where we continue to see strong demand for our services.
Zuhair said: “Our investment team have stepped up to the plate for our clients and demonstrated their dedication by helping guide them through the last few tumultuous weeks.
“In a world where funding levels are improving and more schemes have their long-term goals within reach, we need to adapt investment strategies to achieve these goals. The outlook remains uncertain, so resilience will continue to be a key theme, alongside responsible investment.”
Clay said: “It's been a real pleasure leading a group of such talented people over the last seven years. I'm excited to pursue the many opportunities we have in front of us, and have no doubt Zuhair is an excellent leader to guide us through the next phase.”
Aaron Punwani, LCP CEO, commented: “Zuhair’s depth of experience, knowledge and ability to translate geopolitical and macroeconomic events into solutions for clients mean he is the ideal leader to help the team support clients through uncertain and volatile times. The Investment team has grown from strength to strength in size, quality and reputation, and we thank Clay for his role in driving this.”
