He advises the trustee boards of pension schemes operating across a wide range of sectors, with assets ranging from £50m to £600m. He also provides advice on corporate accounting, PPF levies and long-term pensions strategy to a range of UK and overseas pension scheme sponsors.
Jack is also a member of Barnett Waddingham’s expert witness and litigation advisory teams, with extensive experience in professional negligence and Part 8 claims. He plays a key role in helping the parties to understand complex actuarial issues arising as part of the litigation process and has, on several occasions, provided actuarial support in high-profile High Court proceedings.
Jack joined Barnett Waddingham in 2012, having graduated with a first class master’s degree in mathematics from Merton College, Oxford. He qualified as a Fellow of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries in 2015, and as a Chartered Enterprise Risk Actuary in 2016.
In his spare time, Jack enjoys travelling and is a keen football fan.
“I really enjoy my job. The technical and analytical work is undoubtedly important, and plays to my strengths, but for me the most rewarding part is communicating the work that I do to my clients. The rapport that I have built up with my clients over the years has helped me to understand the issues that most concern them, which allows me to produce solutions tailored specifically to their needs.”
