Law Debenture Pension Trustees welcomes its fifth appointment in 12 months

04 September 2017

This week Law Debenture Pension Trustees welcomes new Trustee Director Sean Burnard.

He joins from Vendian Investment Management LLP where he was COO/CCO of the Family Office team and was also responsible for due diligence on their private assets and hedge fund allocation. This was Sean's most recent role in a career spanning 12 years as an investment professional preceded by 10 years as an actuary.

This combination of actuarial and investment background is a sound basis for pension trusteeship, an opinion shared by Sean's previous colleagues.

Iain Tait, Actuarial Director, Gemmell Financial Services Limited

As a Pensions Actuary and Consultant at HSBC, Sean provided Trustees with advice regarding their DB liabilities and DC scheme structure; executed asset, liability matching, investing and winding up of DB schemes. His time in various COO roles developed his skills in all areas of operations and he gained experience in a number of asset types, including governance, all of which prompted his move to join LawDeb.

Michael Chatterton, Managing Director of LawDeb Pension Trustees commented on Sean’s appointment by saying how pleased he was to welcome him to the team.

Sean’s appointment is another example of the growing demand for our services and our ability to hire knowledgeable people who are committed to best practice in trustee board governance. He adds depth to our risk management and investment expertise that is critical to our ability to help guide our clients’ pension schemes.
