Yvonne joined 20-20 Trustees in October 2018 and is based in our Manchester office. She is a qualified actuary with 18 years’ experience in the pensions industry.
Yvonne has extensive experience of providing advice to Trustee and corporate clients on defined benefit and defined contribution pension arrangements ranging from under £5 million to over £500 million in asset size. This advice has spanned the full lifetime of a pension scheme from new scheme set-up all the way through to buy-out and wind-up, including regular ongoing matters such as triennial funding valuations, integrated risk management, member communications and scheme governance, and one-off projects such as bulk liability management exercises, scheme mergers and employer debts.
Yvonne specialises in advising on actuarial related matters being a qualified actuary herself. She holds a Scheme Actuary Practising Certificate and is currently appointed as the Scheme Actuary for a number of pension schemes.
Prior to joining 20-20 Trustees, Yvonne started her career at Mercer working there for over 8 years before moving to JLT (which became part of Mercer in 2019).
Yvonne has a first class honours degree in Mathematics from Manchester University, where she won a number of prizes for outstanding performance. She qualified as a Fellow of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries in 2005. She was also the People & Society News Editor for The Actuary magazine, the official magazine of the actuarial profession, for over 7 years until mid-2019.
