As a Principal in LCP’s DC team I advise many large clients on all DC matters. Although I only recently joined LCP (June 2020), I have been working in the pensions industry focusing on consulting on defined contribution plans for 20 years. I feel privileged to be helping schemes and sponsoring companies to further develop their approach to pension savings for their members and employees.

I joined LCP at an unprecedented time, where trustee and member support is paramount and I am very pleased to have joined an organisation fully focused on supporting their clients and their members. My role is to lead the future development of LCP’s DC investment proposition and research, while continuing with client advisory work to help support the fast growing LCP DC client base. I have worked with a number of the largest DC pension schemes in the UK, including advising on five master trusts / super trusts during my career.

I am also actively involved in a number of organisations and taskforces which share the same ambition of improving member outcomes. This includes working with the DCIF on their Advisory Committee and also broader industry roles such as the consultant input to the Patient Capital initiative work with HM Treasury.
