I advise both occupational and personal pension schemes on a wide range of DB and DC pension issues. This includes working with trustees, independent governance committees and personal pension providers on business-as-usual issues, as well as major projects (including risk transfer projects).

Recent examples include advising on:

  • regulatory and legal developments in areas such as the increase in NMPA, transfers of benefits, consumer duty and value for money
  • DC chair statements
  • a number of buy-ins and proposed scheme wind-ups
  • DC investment platform and governance arrangements.

I also have experience of advising corporate clients on transactions involving significant DB pension liabilities. This includes advising the buy-side on a takeover of a publicly listed company, on a proposed company voluntary arrangement, on the release of parent company guarantees and on the establishment of an asset-backed funding arrangement.
