Martyn Evans, Director of Altus Consulting, commented: “We are really pleased to welcome Janine to the team.  As the distinction between Investments and Retirement becomes increasingly blurred, the Investments Director is an exciting new role that brings together the significant work we do today across Wealth, Investment Platforms, Life & Pensions and Equity Release.  The financial services sector is going through a wave of change as it rapidly adjusts to serving its customers in a Covid-19 world, whilst simultaneously addressing costs and accelerating automation.  We support our clients through our deep industry insight, rigorously engineered models, technical know-how and delivery skills.  Janine is a fantastic addition to our team of experts.”   

Menasakanian said: “I am looking forward to working with Martyn and the Altus team. This is an incredibly challenging time for the financial services sector, but the rapid pace of change gives flexible, innovative companies such as Altus the opportunity to deliver real improvements in the industry and help organisations adapt to these new circumstances. I hope to share my in-depth experience with Altus’ exceptional team and support its clients and the sector.”

Menasakanian started with Altus on Monday 5th of October.
