I head up LCP's Pensions Research team and am instrumental in analysing and communicating regulatory and professional developments to audiences both within and outside LCP. Most notably I am involved in LCP's weekly Pensions Bulletin which I have edited since 2004.
With experience built up in the occupational pensions regulatory field over many years, interests cover the broad spectrum of Government policy and legislation, particularly that emanating from: the Department for Work and Pensions, the Pensions Regulator, the Pension Protection Fund and other compensation schemes, the Pensions Ombudsman and the Courts and the technical and ethical regulation of actuaries through the Financial Reporting Council and the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries respectively.
I undertake technical writing in these areas for LCP and I particularly enjoy the challenge of explaining a complicated subject, commenting on developments internally and to the media, and engaging with policymakers.
- I am the immediate past Chairman of the Pension Schemes Committee of the Association of Consulting Actuaries (ACA) on which I continue to serve – in that capacity I assist the ACA in responding to consultations and assist Government departments with some of the necessary detail in their policy making.
- I serve on the DWP’s GMP conversion working group and am the principle point of contact for the DWP in relation to this group
LCP have a practical way of looking at things and cut through the noise on essential issues.

How I can help
We provide individual and high quality actuarial advice, taking a collaborative approach between trustees, employer and advisers, to ensure a focus on good member outcomes.
We help pension scheme trustees and sponsors to determine the ultimate destination for their scheme and help them put together a plan to get there, including how to effectively manage the risks they face along the way.
