Cass Professor David Blake has been recognised for his contribution to the pensions debate by being listed as one of the 50 most influential people in the UK pensions industry by Pensions Insight magazine.

The list highlights the 50 individuals who the editorial team at Pensions Insight believe are influencing pensions today and shaping them for tomorrow. Professor Blake is the only academic recognised in this list which is also made up of both high profile spokespeople and those working quietly behind the scenes.

Professor Blake is described in the publication as being "…one of the most significant pensions researchers and analysts working in the UK." He is also recognised for establishing the Pensions Institute at Cass and co-founding the LifeMetrics Indices, an index to benchmark and trade longevity risk, developed in association with JP Morgan.

Commenting on the list, Professor Blake said: ""It is gratifying to see that my work and the work of the Pensions Institute is being recognised by the pensions industry. I am honoured to be sharing a position on a list of such highly esteemed experts."
