Nell McRae


Nell works as a senior investment consultant at Hymans Robertson. She leads investment advice for private sector Trustee clients with asset values from £15m to £7bn. She proactively assists those clients understand and manage their investment risks and has a breadth of experience in risk management, including complex LDI solutions and implementing longevity hedging. Most recently, she was involved in the implementation of several buy-ins and the conversion of a longevity swap.

Having joined as a graduate in 2012 and qualified as an actuary in 2017, Nell has worked with a number of her clients since day 1 and has now seen those clients achieve their long term objectives and secure liabilities through buy-in transactions. She is a believer in integrated risk-management and joined-up working among those within and outside of Hymans, and seeks to promote this collaborative culture in her projects.

In addition to her client commitments, Nell chairs the learning and development investment group and is involved in the development of the firm’s climate change analytics capabilities.


Outside of work, Nell enjoys keeping active by hill-walking, skiing, and (at the moment…) Zoom based exercises classes. She also has a passion for cooking and baking new recipes (and is now moving beyond the weekly ‘lockdown sourdough’).
