head of DC regulation joins LCP on secondment

Darran Burton joins LCP’s DC consulting team, headed by LCP partner Chris Clough, and will offer clients trustee training and first-hand insight into the implementation of the DC code of practice.

Darran said: “I very much welcome the opportunity to work with LCP. Understanding their challenges can only help us to improve the governance of UK DC provision.”

Chris Clough, LCP partner and head of DC consulting added: “Darran’s knowledge of DC regulation is unrivalled and, along with his experience of the regulatory landscape, his contribution at LCP will be of huge value to both the DC consulting team and to our clients, who will benefit directly from Darran’s insight and advice.”

The regulator’s HR director Una Mills said: “Our secondment programme provides opportunities for our employees to gain front line experience in the industry, and ensures that our knowledge and understanding of the community we regulate remains current, up-to-date and commercially focused.” 

LCP’s DC consulting team supports employers, trustees and management committees in helping members understand the options available for their pension saving.  Services include benefit design; investment advice; administration and communication solutions; and provider selection and effective governance.
