I am a qualified actuary, consultant and scheme secretary in the pensions industry. I graduated from the University of Glasgow with a First Class BSc (Hons) in Statistics and shortly afterwards started my career at Hymans Robertson as a trainee actuarial consultant.
Day-to-day, I provide pension advice to trustees of defined benefit pension schemes. I specialise in open schemes with clients ranging in asset size from £100m to £1bn.
2020 has been a particularly challenging year for everyone. I appreciate that I am extremely fortunate to have been able to continue to work throughout these unprecedented times. Despite the pandemic, and its various challenges, this year has been the most rewarding of my career so far – pitching to win a new client, retaining my largest client and working on a complex expert witness case.
What I enjoy most about my job is the people – my colleagues, my clients and striving to achieve the best outcome for pension scheme members.
