In this blog, Daren Newman explains how trustees can benefit from independent reassurance about their administration service.
My name is Daren and I am a partner with over 20 years’ experience in the pensions industry.
I lead the pensions administration department in LCP's Winchester office and play a key role in the strategic direction of the department.
I am experienced in ensuring the smooth transition of administration services from other providers. A recent example is the successful transition of the UK's largest multi-employer scheme.
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.
