Treasurer, Law For Life
Jon qualified as a Fellow of the Institute of Actuaries (as it was) in 1977, since when most of his career has been in different aspects of DB pensions.
Having formerly worked at two large private sector consultancies for 16 years, he was employed by Government Actuary’s Department from January 1990 until May 2018.
Professionally, he was a member of the Pension Fund Valuations & Market Values Working Party (which reported in October 1999) and the Valuation Rates of Interest Working Party (which was terminated before work was completed), serving on Pensions CPD Committee from 2010 until 2016 and is currently a member of the SIAS Committee.
His focus is trying to explain why the long-term future is not at all well addressed by short-term measurements, a battle still being fought.
