Chris is one of Barnett Waddingham’s thought leaders on Integrated Risk Management (IRM), and is a member of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries’ working party on IRM. He also heads up our team that advises clients on the Pension Protection Fund (PPF) levy and how it can be managed.

Other expertise:

Chris is a member of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries’ working party on Integrated Risk Management (IRM) and co-authored a guide for actuaries on how to implement IRM in practice.

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 of the London office’s two pensions actuarial teams, and so is responsible for managing workload and the team’s development.
