London Stock Exchange listed JLT Employee Benefits is relocating its entire Scottish operation to a new West Edinburgh-based headquarters this autumn.
The global organisation, which has around 200 staff in Edinburgh and is one of the world’s largest providers of pensions and employee benefits, will move to Lochside Avenue in the Gyle’s business district in October.
Following JLT’s partnership with Aegon in November last year, which saw it transfer over 100 staff from Aegon Trustee Solutions, and its subsequent £17m acquisition of Alexander Forbes Consultants & Actuaries in December, the company has outgrown its current premises.
“This is an exciting step forward, cementing our place as one of the largest employee benefit providers in Scotland,” said Malcolm Paul, chairman at JLT.
“From our new Scottish headquarters we will be better able to deliver the full range of services to pension scheme trustees, employers and scheme members.”
