Chris Ramsey FIA


Chris provides actuarial and consultancy advice to trustees and employers of defined benefit pension schemes.

Chris is a Scheme Actuary and advises trustees on the full range of scheme actuary work, including pension scheme funding, as well as on broader strategic actuarial matters.

Chris is one of Barnett Waddingham’s thought leaders on Integrated Risk Management (IRM) and advising clients on their long term journey plan to get to either buy-out or a low risk strategy.  He also advises trustees and corporates on strategies for engaging members on their options (so called “liability management”).

Chris also heads up our team that advises clients on the Pension Protection Fund (PPF) levy and how it can be managed.

Significant experience:

  • Scheme Actuary advice
  • Integrated Risk Management
  • Strategic journey planning
  • PPF levy mitigation
  • Member options advice (and the impact on journey planning)
  • Liability management exercises
  • Company accounting advice

Other expertise:

Until recently Chris was a member of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries’ working party on Integrated Risk Management (IRM).  As part of this working party he co-authored a guide for actuaries on how to implement IRM in practice.

As part of the Actuarial Committee of the Society of Pension Professionals, Chris inputs into consultation responses on pensions matters (for example, on emerging legislation).    He was a member of the firm’s Pensions Research Group for a number of years – as part of this committee he helped research new pensions regulations and developments, produced our pensions newsletters and spoke at seminars for our clients and industry contacts. 

Chris is also a team leader of one our London Actuarial Consulting team, and so is responsible for managing workload and the team’s development.
