14 Mar 2019
Hymans Robertson has promoted Catherine McFadyen, an existing Partner in the firm to be its head of LGPS Actuarial, Benefits and Governance.
Since joining the leading pensions and risk consultancy in 2003, Catherine has provided strategic advice to some of the largest local government pension schemes (LGPS) in England and Scotland. Her passion and drive has been integral to the LGPS team’s success.
Prior to joining Hymans Robertson, Catherine gained experience across a number of private sector areas, holding project and change management roles with British Energy, PepsiCo and PwC.
Commenting on the appointment, Catherine McFadyen, Partner and Head of LGPS Actuarial, Benefits and Governance at Hymans Robertson says:
“The LGPS is one of workplace pension provision’s greatest success stories, representing the retirement savings of thousands across every corner of the country. Hymans Robertson is at the forefront of innovation in this industry and I’m so proud to lead our passionate and dedicated LGPS team. Our recent appointment by the Scheme Advisory Board to carry out their vitally important review of LGPS governance structures is indicative of the team’s high levels of expertise.
“The LGPS has responded to changing events and evolved considerably over the last few years. With valuations on the horizon for many schemes in England and Wales, 2019 looks set to be just as busy as previous years and the recent ruling on the McCloud case and the challenges of the cost management process mean that funds have greater uncertainty and change to navigate. I am excited to be taking on the responsibility for our LGPS actuarial and governance services at this important time and to ensure that Hymans Robertson continues to deliver market-leading service and support to all of our LGPS clients”
