Let's talk

David Fairs


I joined LCP as a Partner in April 2023, having previously been Executive Director for Regulatory Policy, Analysis and Advice at the Pension Regulator. During that time, I co-chaired the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Committee and was Lead Executive for Climate Change. I oversaw the development and implementation of Policy in relation to the Pension Schemes Act 2021, as well the interim guidance for Superfunds. I also lead on a number of key policy initiatives including TPR’s response to the September 2022 market turbulence around LDI, TPR’s guidance on fiduciary management, professional pension trustee accreditation, covid related guidance and co-ordinated with HM Treasury and DWP on the response to the Russia-Ukraine conflict.  

Whilst at the Regulator, I was also Chair of the Pensions Working Group and Committee Member of the Joint Forum for Actuarial Regulation, a member of the Regulators’ Stewardship Group, the Productive Finance Working Group, and a member of the Portfolio Committee for oversight of the Pensions Dashboard.

I am an Honorary Professor at Durham University Business School, Chair of the Genomics Development Board of Sarcoma UK, an advisory Board member of the Department of Mathematical Sciences at Essex University, a Governor of the Pensions Policy Institute and Chair of the Advisory Board for a joint PPI / Kings College research project into CDC.
