In this blog, Dan Mikulskis asks how well you have TESTED the impact of your covenant on your investment strategy.
I look to help my clients make the best decisions for their situation, making sure the key themes of funding, covenant and investment are pulled together in an effective, integrated way. This is supported by my 20 years’ experience advising a wide variety of clients, both large and small, on all aspects of their pension arrangements.
My pragmatic, approachable style means I’m well suited to working alongside stakeholders to design the best solutions, taking account of individual circumstances.
I co-chair the firm's Diversity and Inclusion Group, for more information on LCP's diversity & inclusion click here.
I’m a Scheme Actuary and am also experienced at managing and delivering large projects backed up by my PRINCE2 practitioner qualification.
I have hosted three webinars on Integrated Risk Management that you can watch by clicking on the links below:

I am secure and comforted in the knowledge that, as a trustee, LCP just "get on" and act in the fund's best interests.
