I am a Partner in LCP's Pensions Actuarial practice.
I qualified as an actuary in 2014, and have experience of advising both trustees and sponsors of pension schemes in a range of areas of Defined Benefit pensions provision. I act as the general day-to-day contact for the majority of my clients, making sure that the client teams deliver the advice needed in the timescales required.
I am also a member of LCP's specialist de-risking practice, and I have worked on a number of £100m+ buy-in and buy-out transactions, advising clients looking to address longevity risk in their scheme. Recent experience includes advising clients on pensioner buy-ins and on full buy-out transactions.
LCP ran a smooth and thorough (buy-in) process, and we are delighted to have been able to secure the benefits of our pension scheme members.

How I have helped our clients
How the Littlewoods Pensions Scheme engaged with the market to achieve transaction success
How a collaborative approach led to a £855m full buy-out for the PA Consulting Pension Scheme.
Our report this year finds that the insurance market is entering a pension scheme buy-out boom due to improved affordability, driven by stalling life expectancies, good asset performance and attractive insurer pricing.
Our 2018 de-risking report on the buy-in, buy-out and longevity swap market comes at a time when pension de-risking is more exciting than ever.
