I am a member of LCP's Pensions Research team and have more than 25 years' pensions experience - both advising clients and supporting my colleagues.

My primary role is to help my colleagues answer the thornier questions generated by pensions legislation and developments, both by resolving direct queries and by producing and maintaining technical reference material.

I am also involved in producing our weekly pensions bulletin, which is available to clients, and the trustee training courses we offer.

External appointments

  • Member of the IFoA's 400 Club
  • Member 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.
