I have been a Trustee for over 20 years and now act as an Independent Trustee (usually as chairman). I have implemented or been involved in the majority of transactions and changes which can affect pension schemes - including a ground breaking rescue operation for UK Coal. I have particular experience of governance, negotiations and all types of investments (both traditional and alternative).
I currently chair schemes with a combined membership of over 100,000 and £6bn under management.
I work with several professional advisors from a number of different firms and have developed a strong network of contacts.
As an Actuary I have developed my experience in pensions over 25 years - directly involved in all aspects from investment through benefit design to administration and outsource contract negotiations.
For the last twelve years as I have built my pension scheme portfolio I have engaged in a number of consulting assignments - setting up the processes and staffing for “With Profit Committees”, advising on and subsequently negotiating major outsource contracts and advising on pension scheme benefits. My focus is now entirely on my role as Independent Trustee.
