Pensions & Investments editor in chief Jennifer Ablan sent out the following on Wednesday:

Dear all,

We would like to inform you that after a long, prolific and award-winning career with Pensions & Investments, Christine Williamson will be retiring next month. Christine celebrated her 35th anniversary with P&I this year and for decades has covered the good, the bad and the ugly in the hedge fund world.

Christine originally joined P&I in 1988 as directory coordinator for surveys. Then, after a stint as one of P&I’s first defined contribution plan reporters, she was assigned to cover hedge funds and has written about “that fascinating part of the investment industry for many years.”

When asked in 2021 what stories get her excited, Christine responded: “Scandal is good. I’ve been working on some situations with regard to gender discrimination and that sort of thing … as the industry struggles with ESG, diversity, equality and inclusivity.”

Among her most memorable interviews were with legendary hedge fund managers Ray Dalio and John Paulson, and Minnesota State Board of Investment’s now-retired CIO Mansco Perry III.

It would be an understatement to say that Christine will be missed in our newsroom. Her stories about traveling and birdwatching as well as her deep knowledge and vast network of sources have been a part of the P&I fabric.

We will be planning a gathering to celebrate Christine and her career in the next few weeks in Chicago. Details to come!

Jennifer Ablan and Julie Tatge
