LCP has welcomed James Silber as a Principal to its growing Covenant team. He has joined the firm from PwC where he was a Senior Manager in the Pensions Employer Covenant & Restructuring team.

James has many years' experience in employer covenant advisory, advising trustees and corporates on some of the UK’s largest DB schemes. He has also worked on developing approaches to incorporating climate-related factors into employer covenant reviews and assisting with TCFD processes. He has a strong understanding of the DB pensions regulatory framework, having worked at the Pensions Regulator where he was a Business Analyst and supported on policy including assisting with the preparation of Annual Funding Statements.

He will be helping to support the growth of LCP’s Covenant team and to develop their service offerings in light of regulatory changes expected in the updated code of practice on scheme funding and new covenant guidance.

Following James’ arrival, LCP’s Covenant team is now made up of 10 full time specialists who have had great success in recent years advising trustees, corporates and investors alike, providing innovative and integrated advice..

Jonathan Wolff, Head of LCP’s Covenant team, commented: “Our team continues to grow from strength to strength. We are really excited that James has joined us, he will further enhance the advice and support we can give our clients as they face new regulatory and economic challenges on the horizon.”   

James added: “I am delighted to be joining LCP’s growing covenant team, which has a great reputation for being straight talking and giving market-leading advice. I am looking forward to bringing my practical and policy experience to the firm and working with trustees and sponsors to provide clear, integrated and long-term support and solutions.”
