John has been with Mercer for 11 years, having previously spent 10 years in a Big 4 consultancy. John provides financial strategy advise to mainly larger and more complex schemes, providing advice and solutions that span across funding, investment and covenant. By viewing pensions through the businesses’ lens, he is able to find solutions that reduce cost for the Company, whilst improving the security and outcomes for members. This often involves using structures outside of the pension scheme, such as escrow accounts, surety bonds, partnership and captive structures.
John also specialises in advising financial service firms, and is the lead advisor to many top tier banks and insurers.
