Given her background, Jane brings a wealth of in-depth pensions knowledge and experience to her work as a professional trustee. She is a qualified actuary and an Accredited Member of the Association of Professional Trustees.

In particular, she has been working on a number of technically demanding projects, including GMP equalisation and conversion, buy-in, wind-up and a PPF+ case, helping to guide schemes through complex decisions. Jane also has a portfolio of executive top-up arrangements.
Outside her trustee work, Jane is Secretary to the Pensions Committee of the 100 Group. She has participated in a number of industry committees over the years, and is a former chair of the ACA (Association of Consulting Actuaries) Pension Schemes Committee.

What people say:
“We were delighted to have Jane join the YCB GMP and Audit and Risk Sub-Committees. Her knowledge of the finer detail of the GMP equalisation regulatory framework has helped us in developing a robust and practical approach to GMP conversion. At the same time, her wider industry connections have enabled us to benchmark our experiences against those of other schemes. She brings strong governance capabilities and a practical and collaborative approach to working with fellow trustees and advisers. Jane’s personality and approach has allowed her to integrate into our existing arrangements seamlessly.”
