In this blog, Jonathan Wolff discusses what moving into a consolidator means for employer covenant.
My name is Gordon and I'm a partner at LCP, having joined LCP straight from graduating at Warwick University.
I enjoy building close working relationships with my clients and helping companies understand and manage their pension risks. In particular I work with several financial services companies helping them with their regulatory capital requirements.
I also work with large corporates on benefit change projects, liability management exercises and financial reporting.
