I am a qualified actuary with more than 25 years' pensions experience – initially advising clients directly and latterly also my colleagues as a senior member of LCP’s Pensions Research team.

I analyse and advise on the thornier questions generated by pensions legislation and industry developments – with particular expertise in the areas of pensions tax, early leaver protections (including anti-franking!) scheme funding and actuarial factors – and communicate these, often complex, issues in a manner that is clear and easy to digest.

I am delighted to have been nominated onto the inaugural Committee of the newly launched LCP Foundation for charitable giving, - click here for more information on the Foundation - and also to be the Communities Officer for the LCP’s Women’s Network.

Professional commitments outside LCP include volunteering in the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries' 400 Club and membership of the Society of Pension Professionals Legislation Committee.

LCP has a practical way of looking at things and cut through the noise on essential issues.
