With over 20 years’ experience as acting as a full time professional trustee, Colin has worked with a wide range of trustee board members and advisers; sometimes as Chairman, other times as a board member assisting the Chairman.
His trusteeships involve both defined contribution and defined benefits and has over 30 years' experience of winding up such schemes with involvement from beginning to end.
Colin is experienced in bringing a sense of calm and reassurance to seemingly complex proceedings such as bulk annuity purchases, sales and purchases, funding negotiations with overseas parent sponsors, liability management and dealing with the Pensions Regulator.
He also undertakes non-pension trusteeships where skills and processes are transferable and these include employee benefit trusts, escrow agent and healthcare trusteeship.
Colin is a Warwick University graduate and a member of the Chartered Insurance Institute and holds the CFA UK’s Investment Management Certificate.
