When requesting information by email, I have noticed that there is 'out of hours activity' to answer me. I regard this as a stand out 'above and beyond' - impressed.
Very professional and engaged service.
Danny Nussbaum,
HR Director, Volvo
​Their pragmatic approach helps with quick and easy decision making. Another approach might have made things more difficult.

Role

Freda is an Assistant Scheme Manager within our specialist Pension Protection Fund (PPF) team.

Background & experience

Freda’s first pensions role was as an administrator of Ghana’s National Social Security Pension Scheme where she reviewed and processed pensions, assembled claims and organised payment of dependants’ benefits. She then developed her studies in the UK, taking a master’s degree in business administration.

Freda came back to pensions after her degree and continued her career with us. She is experienced in managing pension schemes through the PPF assessment period and has also worked on a PPF plus buyout case. She helps the team maintain compliance with regulatory and internal control procedures such as AAF.

Freda has grown and gained valuable experience in her few years within the industry and is currently in the process of developing her own portfolio of cases.

Freda travelled solo to Benin in West Africa to develop her passion for learning French. She enjoys being of help and meeting new people and occasionally volunteers with a homeless charity.
