Partner and Head of Pensions Administration
My name is Daren and I am a partner with over 25 years’ experience in the pensions industry.
I lead our excellent pensions administration department and am responsible for its strategic direction, developing our services as our clients’ needs evolve. A recent key initiative has been the development of our market-leading technology, providing clients and their members with much more meaningful information at their fingertips.
I am a highly experienced scheme secretary having, over the years, performed the role for a number of trustee boards.
I also lead a team specialising in reviewing benefit calculations performed by other administrators, whether this be a third-party provider or an in-house team. I find that reviewing a sample of calculations in this way can provide Trustees with a real insight into the administration service their members are receiving.
External appointments and memberships
- Fellow of Pensions Management Institute
- PRINCE2 (project management) Practitioner
Daren brings a wealth of experience to our Trustee Board. Relevant issues are brought to our attention at the appropriate time with tailored and pragmatic solutions. All LCP services are fully integrated so that we can be confident nothing is missed. If you are seeking best practice, I recommend highly Daren and his team.
