David Fairs joins LCP as Partner

Pensions & benefits Policy & regulation

David Fairs, who was previously Executive Director of Regulatory Policy, Analysis and Advice at The Pensions Regulator (TPR), is joining LCP as a Partner.

David spent four years at TPR, where he oversaw the introduction of a range of important policy initiatives through a time of significant change and challenge for the pensions industry, including the granting of significant new powers under the Pension Schemes Act and the new DB funding regime. Prior to working at TPR, he was a Pensions Partner at KPMG.

David will be joining LCP’s market-leading pensions practice in April, working closely with our clients to help them navigate the increasingly complex developments and issues facing the industry, as well as supporting LCP's continuing evolution and expansion of offerings to the market.

David Fairs commented, “The pension landscape is rapidly shifting, and trustees and sponsors of schemes face a host of regulatory changes in a rapidly evolving world as people’s working patterns and finances change. I have long been an admirer of LCP and am excited to join a firm which has such a strong reputation for being people-centric, ambitious in its approach and not afraid to challenge the status quo.”

Aaron Punwani, LCP CEO, added: “David brings a wealth of experience and insight that will help our clients understand and tackle their most important challenges. In his role at TPR, he was passionate about driving positive change to help protect savers and bring about better retirement outcomes, and we are delighted that he will be working with us to continue that mission.”

Michelle Wright, LCP’s Head of Pensions Strategy, continued, “We are at a pivotal time in our industry, where it is more important than ever that we’re able to look to the future to ensure our clients are well-positioned to react to policy developments on the horizon. David’s specialist knowledge, passion and influence make him perfectly placed to help drive LCP’s continued innovation, helping us to meet evolving client needs in an ever-changing pensions landscape”.
