Since joining LCP in 1999 I have been helping our clients manage their pension risk. So when I saw a UK market for transferring this risk to insurance companies developing in the mid-2000s, I spearheaded the development of LCP’s own buy-in, buy-out and longevity swap team. Today this team is renowned as being the leader in our field, taking home 8 out of the 9 de-risking awards from the Financial Times and Professional Pensions since 2011.
As the head of the buy-in, buy-out and longevity swap team I have led on some of the industry's defining buy-in and buy-out transactions of recent years. My role is often that of a specialist lead advisor, working alongside incumbent actuarial and investment advisors. In this role I help clients negotiate structure and execute successful transactions.
One of our clients recently commented that I gave them huge confidence that LCP will deliver what is required. I was pretty happy with that because in a buy-in or buy-out transaction, nothing is more important.
I must say from my side that your advice was always excellent and put in very clear terms… you had my absolute trust and it was a real pleasure working with you.
