I help people understand the rules about pensions. I simplify complex legislation into plain English and give pragmatic opinions that help solve problems.
I am a pensions professional with in-depth knowledge of the UK pensions legislative regime. I am a senior member of LCP’s pensions research team analysing pension rules and legislation and helping our clients deal with the issues that arise.
My current focus is on DC pension governance and legislation. Before that, up until the summer of 2016, I worked mainly on pension taxation legislation.
I have been involved with several of LCP’s and PMI’s responses to government consultations on pensions taxation.
