Client feedback


When requesting information by email, I have noticed that there is 'out of hours activity' to answer me. I regard this as a stand out 'above and beyond' - impressed.

Role

Wayne is a hugely experienced professional trustee, sole trustee and trustee board chair.

Background & experience

Wayne started his pensions career in 1990 with Prudential in the specialist area of Small Self Administered Schemes working on direct pension scheme investment. He continued in this role with Alexander Clay & Partners, working with larger occupational pension schemes. He also undertook secretary to the trustees, pensions manager and consultant roles on international clients.

In 2001, Wayne moved back to concentrate on acting solely as a professional pension trustee. Before joining us in 2005, he was a director of another trustee business where he was appointed by the Pensions Regulator to the failed MG Rover pension arrangements.
