David Lucas


I am a consultant in LCP’s Pension Actuarial practice, having joined LCP’s graduate programme in 2015 and qualified as an actuary in 2018.

I work with both Trustee and Corporate clients, ranging from in size from sub £50m to £10bn plus, advising them on all aspects of their pension arrangements, including funding valuations, de-risking strategy and pension scheme accounting.

As a member of LCP’s specialist de-risking team, I have helped a number of schemes manage their longevity risk through buy-ins and buy-outs.  Key transactions I have worked on include Tate and Lyle’s £930m full buy-in in 2019, and the PPF+ full buy-in secured by the Countrywide Farmers RBS in 2020.

I also analyse the insurer pricing on all the deals LCP advise on and maintain LCP’s internal insurer pricing model. This allows our clients to understand the key dynamics within the insurance market, helping them decide whether the time is right for insurance de-risking to form part of their pensions strategy and capitalise on opportunities when they arise.


In my spare time I enjoy playing and following various sports, I’m currently training for my first Ironman triathlon later this year.
