About 330 Consulting
I'm David Crum, and I'm the Owner and Director of 330 Consulting. I began my career in the financial services industry in 1988, working in the investment back office of Scottish Provident in Edinburgh. I then moved in to the Local Government Pensions Scheme (LGPS) world in 1996, working for the Lothian Pension Fund, also based in Edinburgh, where I undertook a number of roles.
In 2004, I joined the Strathclyde Pension Fund in Glasgow, taking up the role of Chief Pensions Officer (Investments). Over the next 3 years, I supported the Head of Pensions, working closely with the Elected Members who comprised the Pensions Committee, external investment managers and custodians, and independent advisors and investment consultants.
2007 saw my career taking a slightly different direction, when I joined Aon Hewitt (then Hewitt Associates) as an investment consultant, focussing primarily on helping to develop the LGPS client base, advising LGPS clients, and working in the specialist custody research team, which I subsequently headed for over 3 years.
I set up 330 Consulting in 2012, looking to work directly with pension funds and those in the investment and custody industries who provide services to such funds.
In terms of formal qualifications, I hold the Investment Management Certificate (IMC), I have a postgraduate Diploma in Investment Analysis from Stirling University, and I am an Associate of the CFA Society of the UK (ASIP).
