I joined LCP in September 2020 from a background in corporate audit. The experience I have gained across a wide variety of businesses and industries enables me to provide bespoke advice to trustees and sponsors on an extensive range of covenant related matters.  

As part of LCP’s Covenant team, I provide advisory services to both trustees and sponsors alike to understand the employer covenant supporting their defined benefit pension schemes. Most recently, this has included helping create new product offerings within our team, such as financial risk reviews on UK life insurers as part of a pension scheme’s journey to buy-in and subsequent buy-out.  

I have also been involved in LCP’s Sector Champions initiative, looking to deliver sector-specific insights across all of LCP’s departments as part of tenders, external webinars, and other publications. 

I have a BSc in Accounting and Finance from the University of Essex and I am exam qualified with the ICAEW. My education and professional background enable me to provide well rounded advice when advising clients on their covenant strength and the respective implications. 

I feel totally confident in the provision of a professional and knowledgeable service.
