Alex joined KPMG's pensions team in Glasgow as a graduate in 2014 and qualified in December 2018.
Alex spends most of his time advising a wide range of trustee clients and is working towards getting his Scheme Actuary certificate. He also has significant experience of helping scheme members understand their pensions tax issues, travelling all over the country in the process of doing this.
Outside of the office Alex has been involved in promoting actuarial work to university and high school students. He has presented several times at the Highland Maths Weekend for final year high school students and is currently supporting Strathclyde University with their masters degree in actuarial sciences. Last summer he proposed and co-supervised the project of one of the MSc students, based on the new scheme funding code. Alex has also been part of the IFoA’s Student Consultative Forum, representing the views of Glasgow students on actuarial exams directly to the IFoA. He also currently marks some of the early subject assignments for ActEd.
Alex has also been heavily involved in CSR activities, such as running quiz nights for staff and clients. Other less conventional CSR activities have involved dribbling a football from Glasgow to Falkirk and climbing up and down stairs equal in height to Kilimanjaro.
