I am an experienced Scheme Actuary and I advise both pension scheme trustees and employers that contribute to pension schemes. I head up LCP’s not-for-profit and social housing team. My clients include both pension scheme trustees and employers, including a number of housing associations and charities. He is scheme actuary to several schemes, including three in the not-for-profit sector.
I help my clients manage their pension plans and reduce their pensions risks. I have been involved in a range of work with the Charity Finance Group, including assisting with the CFG's 'Pensions Maze' publications, presenting at conferences and seminars, and meeting with government officials to lobby on behalf of the not-for-profit sector. I have lots of experience of multi-employer pension schemes and helping employers whose pension arrangements are run by The Pensions Trust. I chair LCP’s quarterly housing network round-table sessions for key housing association representatives with pensions responsibilities.
I have advised on a number of pension buy-out exercises and associated investment issues, defined benefit scheme re-design and closure, and defined contribution scheme design and implementation.
I also specialise in advising organisations that participate in the Teachers’ Pension Scheme (TPS). To find out more about our work on teachers' pensions click here.
