Andrew joined Spence & Partners in 2013 as an actuarial trainee and works as part of the Actuarial and Investment Function. He obtained a Postgraduate Diploma in Actuarial Science in January 2017 and continues to progress through his professional actuarial exams with the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries.
He has experience working for private pension schemes, mainly in the provision of actuarial services to trustee and corporate clients, as well as a growing amount of work in the Consultancy Function. Andrew also works in our Not-for-Profit Sector Function, assisting a variety of organisations across the UK with reviews of their pension options, including the provision of liability management exercises.
Prior to joining Spence, Andrew studied law and practised as a barrister at the Northern Ireland Bar for seven years. He worked across various disciplines of the legal system and developed strong analytical, communication and negotiating skills. Andrew utilises his legal knowledge within Spence and is working towards building a specialism in pensions law, which is particularly relevant to his work within the Consultancy Function.
