Lifestyle Article - Former MD of Quattro Pensions joins First Actuarial

Andrew Allsopp, an actuary with more than 20 years’ director-level experience, has moved to First Actuarial. Formerly Managing Director of Quattro Pensions, Andrew has advised on schemes ranging in size from £1m to £2bn.

 Andrew’s working life started at Hazell Carr. He qualified as an actuary in 2001, and as a Scheme Actuary in 2002. In that same year, Andrew became a founding partner of Quattro Pensions – which grew out of the Midlands office of Hazell Carr – and took on management and marketing responsibilities.

 As one of the owners and as Managing Director of Quattro Pensions, he helped take the company from start-up in 2002 to over £7m annual revenue in 2023. When Broadstone acquired Quattro Pensions in 2021, Andrew led the negotiations and the sale process.

 Andrew then remained in place for the next two years as a Senior Actuarial Director.

 Andrew says: “Helping to grow and develop Quattro into a well-respected, mid-market business is a career highlight. I’m particularly proud of the reputation we built at Quattro for treating both staff and clients fairly.”

 The alignment of values was a motivating factor in Andrew’s move to First Actuarial.

 He says: “With our shared values, First Actuarial really does feel like home. Their attitude towards both clients and staff is very much like the business I built at Quattro. First Actuarial say they simply want happy clients and happy staff – treating everyone fairly and always doing the best for clients. That sums it up. It's professional and friendly in equal measure.”

 As a Scheme Actuary, Andrew has advised a range of clients on scheme funding, investments, company accounting, and mergers and acquisitions. He is on the Board of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries’ Designated Professional Body.

 Andrew is looking forward to the challenge of working with new clients and colleagues.

 He concludes: “I’m excited about the work I’ll be doing at First Actuarial. Every scheme brings an interesting new angle. And in an ever-changing environment, there will always be fresh challenges. I’m also looking forward to my involvement in new business activities and helping to grow the firm.”
