The pensions world can be complex, but I believe talking about it doesn’t have to be. I like to build relationships by having open conversations in plain English, understanding and accommodating what is important to my clients.

I support trustees and sponsors of defined benefit schemes on a wide range of issues, from funding their pension schemes to wider pensions strategy. I have particular experience in running pension change projects and communicating benefit changes to members.

I also advise a number of independent schools participating in the Teachers’ Pension Scheme with their remuneration and pensions strategy. You can find more about our work on teachers' pensions here.

Outside of work, I am a keen golfer and love to travel. I am also fluent in Spanish, which is helpful more often than you might expect.

LCP provides clear and understandable information when asked which makes my decision making easier.

We provide individual and high quality actuarial advice, taking a collaborative approach between trustees, employer and advisers, to ensure a focus on good member outcomes.

We are market leaders at each stage of de-risking, including journey planning, investment strategy, transactional services and wind up.

Cost increases mean that it is essential for every independent school to consider their participation in the Teachers’ Pension Scheme carefully. We can help decision-makers decide whether the TPS is right for your school and, if not, what other provision could be proposed. We can also support you through the consultation process, communicating with your teachers with clarity, empathy and honesty.

We help pension scheme trustees and sponsors to determine the ultimate destination for their scheme and help them put together a plan to get there, including how to effectively manage the risks they face along the way.

Our intuitive, real-time pensions technology allows you to see the information you need when you need it, helping you to make decisions.
