Isio has appointed Emily McGuire, a new partner, into its investment advisory team.

McGuire will play a key role in delivering Isio’s ambitious growth plans, focusing on team development, client leadership and exploring growth opportunities within pensions and other institutional investors, bringing with her 23 years of experience from her previous position at Aon. McGuire commented: “I am looking forward to helping the Isio investment team operationalise the delivery approach as it continues its strong growth and to working on the people strategy to help the team develop and achieve their potential."
