Hugh is a Professional Trustee with almost 30 years in the pensions industry. He joined Dalriada in April 2016 having held a variety of senior roles in several major pension consultancies, including management, administration and actuarial positions. He is the immediate past President of the Society of Pension Professionals (SPP) and Chair of the DC Committee of the Association of Consulting Actuaries (ACA), and these roles give him a genuine insight into the best ideas to deliver to his own clients.
He is a Fellow of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries and is a highly experienced Scheme Actuary who has advised a wide range of schemes, including FTSE-100 clients, other household names and a variety of smaller schemes. He currently acts as a Trustee on schemes ranging in size from £1m to around £500m and often acts as Chair, either of the Trustee Board or Sub-Committees such as Investment or Administration. His portfolio of schemes includes traditional Defined Benefit schemes, Defined Contribution schemes and hybrid arrangements.
Hugh’s extensive pensions knowledge is only surpassed by his deep understanding of Pokemon, cartwheels and Thomas the Tank Engine, which he claims is because his three young children like them.
