I am a qualified actuary, with over 15 years’ experience, specialising in corporate pensions.

I enjoy helping organisations understand and manage the long-term costs and financial risks associated with their pensions arrangements.

I have a clear and approachable style that combines my technical expertise, with an understanding of the organisation’s commercial realities and wider strategic objectives. My areas of focus include scheme funding and de-risking, accounting and advice in corporate transactions or restructuring scenarios.

As a leading member of LCP’s M&A Practice I also have significant experience advising buyers, sellers and trustees on the pensions aspects of corporate transactions and restructurings, including carrying out due diligence and providing negotiation support.

If you distil everything about LCP down to one thing, it is 'I trust what they are telling us'.

How I can help

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.

Contingent funding approaches are rapidly becoming more widespread. They can be a great way to protect member benefits as well as the shareholders and other creditors of the sponsoring employer.

We help sponsors of pension schemes understand and manage the costs and risks associated with supporting their current and legacy pension schemes as well as other employee benefits.

We provide expert practical advice on the pensions issues involved when buying or selling businesses.

We work with you and your finance team to ensure that your ongoing statutory duties and compliance exercises are done quickly, efficiently and accurately.

We help companies navigate through the complexity of pensions provision.

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.

We take a pragmatic and integrated approach to valuations.
