I currently work within Buck’s Retirement Consulting team and qualified as an actuary in 2018. I joined Buck in 2014 after graduating with a Master of Mathematics degree from Durham University. I work with both trustee and corporate clients, helping them to understand and effectively manage the risks associated with their defined benefit pension schemes. I am the day-to-day contact on a range of schemes and advise on areas such as pension scheme funding, accounting and long-term strategy. I am also a member of Buck’s liability management team, with experience on member option exercises and de-risking initiatives, and currently act as Buck’s Northern “champion”. I particularly enjoy the variety of my role and whilst specialising in the technical side, I find communicating actuarial work to my clients the most rewarding aspect. Outside of work, I am a keen sportsman, playing both football and cricket for my local teams at the weekend. When not playing, I am also a big football fan and have a season ticket at Man City.
