Julie is an actuary to a number of public sector pension funds, providing advice and actuarial services to funds of a range of sizes in the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS).
She works closely with the partners and associates in the team, advising on funding strategies, setting contribution rates at actuarial valuations and preparing accounting disclosures for employers participating in the LGPS.
“Your statutory rights are unaffected”, “subject to approval”, “terms and conditions apply”; there is plenty of small print in our lives. TAS 100 isn't just small print for actuaries though: it's a key part of a framework of professional standards.
