I am an actuary in the Pensions Actuarial Consulting team at LCP. I support and guide both trustee and corporate clients to effectively run their pension schemes for the benefit of all stakeholders. I work hard to see the world as my clients see it, and use this perspective to give the most appropriate, pertinent support and advice. I work with a wide range of clients and am particularly interested in my work with clients in the entertainment, travel and hospitality sector.

A large part of my work is helping clients manage their pensions risk, while also optimising outcomes for all stakeholders. I focus on helping schemes reach their ultimate long-term objectives.

I provide corporate scheme sponsors with advice on pensions accounting under US GAAP and IAS19, as well as strategic ongoing advice. I manage large-scale de-risking projects, data cleanse projects and liability management exercises.

Client feedback is that they particularly appreciate my pragmatic approach to getting things done in the most efficient way, and the way that I break down complex problems into easy to understand chunks. I believe that a huge part of my role is to explain complicated concepts to my clients in a simple but not simplistic way.

I am a Fellow of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (FIA) and a Chartered Enterprise Risk Actuary (CERA).

Apart from my advisory work at LCP, I mentor actuarial students working towards qualification as actuaries and am an active member of the steering committee for LCP’s Multicultural Network.

I am secure and comforted in the knowledge that, as a trustee, LCP just "get on" and act in the fund's best interests.
