I help defined benefit pension schemes to reduce risks and costs, run effectively and efficiently and improve security for members.
Areas where I have particular expertise include strategic journey planning, advising as the scheme actuary on buy-in transactions, supporting large schemes with in-house executive teams and working with schemes that are run on a sole trustee basis.
Working closely with Claire Jones (LCP’s head of responsible investment) I lead the development of LCP’s climate scenario analysis service. I have supported a wide range of schemes on implementing the TCFD (Taskforce on Climate-related Disclosures) requirements that were introduced through the Pension Schemes Act 2021.
Within LCP I sit on our Environment, Social and Governance Panel, which leads our work in these areas across the actuarial, investment and covenant practices. I also sit on LCP’s Financial Assumptions Committee, which provides guidance on appropriate assumptions to the whole firm.
What clients say about me
- Graham doesn’t waste time and instead offers open conversations about what is achievable, whilst treading the right line between the company and the trustees.
- Graham is very quick to understand the implications of new Government initiatives and frequently provides helpful advice before other firms.
We view Graham and the team at LCP as an extension of our in-house pensions team – they are personable, responsive and a pleasure to work with.
