Anna has spent her career advising clients who operate or sponsor occupational pension schemes, with a particular expertise in defined benefit schemes.
Her current work focuses on various stages of the journey to ultimate winding-up, such as alternatives to rules consolidation, benefit audits and specifications, bulk purchase annuity transactions, remedial action, partial termination, participating employer reconciliations, and funding and security negotiations. She is also currently engaged in governance, compliance and liability management, including de-risking exercises of all kinds.
Anna started in pensions in 1984 and has helped clients work through all the significant pensions legal and regulatory developments as they have unfolded over the last three decades. Anna also has experience with many scheme mergers, demergers, and the pensions aspects of corporate transactions at UK and international levels.
