Our consultation responses

Why and how LCP responds to public consultations

At LCP, we believe we should play an active role in shaping the future of the industries we advise in. Through our engagement with government, regulators and others, we aim to contribute to the development of a robust, fair and sustainable regulatory landscape. We are committed to transparency.

This page is where you can find our formal responses to various industry consultations. Our goal is to foster open dialogue and share our insights and views with clients and the broader industry.

Below you will find links to our recent consultation responses. These documents are intended to provide insights into our perspective on key issues impacting the pensions & benefits, investment, insurance, energy, health, football and business analytics industries. Occasionally, we may choose not to publish a response (e.g. if it is subject to confidentiality protection or to protect our intellectual property).
