I’ve been a qualified actuary for twelve years, working in LCP’s Pensions Research department for the past 10 years.

My role often involves communicating complex issues in a simple, understandable way - not always easy when you focus on areas such as the Pension Protection Fund, employer debt, actuarial professional standards and state pensions!

My innovative solutions have saved clients millions in PPF levies, and I am told that my enthusiastic training sessions have helped both colleagues and clients embrace the issues their pension schemes face with confidence. 

LCP consistently deliver a quality service in a way that makes my working life easier.
