My name is Rachel and I am a Senior Consultant in LCP's DC Consulting team. I provide advice to a range of trustee and employer clients.
I help clients make sure their DC scheme is managed as efficiently as possible and continues to remain fit for purpose in the constantly changing DC environment.
As well as on-going governance advice, I help clients with various DC strategy projects including reviewing their pension provider to ensure the best possible terms are achieved, scheme design benchmarking and advising on bulk transfers on closure and / or wind-up.
I also lead LCP's DC ‘Bundled’ Research team carrying out site visits at pension providers to assess and understand their evolving propositions and how they compare in the market, making sure clients benefit from this research in the services they and their members receive.
LCP consistently deliver a quality service in a way that makes my working life easier.
