Lifestyle Article - Hymans Robertson appoint Head of Pension Policy Innovation


Hymans Robertson has appointed Calum Cooper to the newly created role of Head of Pension Policy Innovation. In this new role he’ll steer the firm’s voice in helping to shape the future of pensions policy and regulation, with the aim of achieving better outcomes for savers.

 Calum’s focus will be on finding the alignment between the firm’s capabilities and expertise and a wider social purpose. He’ll work with political and industry stakeholders to leverage the will to make change happen.

 Calum is an Equity Member at Hymans Robertson and joined the firm in 2003. He advises charities, pension scheme trustees and sponsors on long term financial strategy and sustainability. Calum will continue to work with pension clients including as actuary to the Trustees of the UK’s first superfund, the Clara Pension Trust.

 In his new role Calum will be working closely with Paul Waters, Head of DC Markets and Laura McLaren, Head of DB Scheme Actuary Services, as Hymans Robertson’s core pension policy leadership team.

 Commenting on the strengths Calum will bring to the role, Richard Shackleton, Head of Pensions, Hymans Robertson says: “Calum has a great passion for making change in pensions happen, for the good of both society and individuals. Combining this with his boundless energy, innovative thinking and vast pensions expertise, I know he will be fantastic in working to achieve policy change. As a firm, we are committed to being a balanced and insightful voice on the future of long term, later life savings. It’s a multi-year commitment and one that aligns clearly with our ‘Business is a force for good’ BCorp status. With Calum spear-heading this innovation and activity, we believe we can help shape the future of pensions policy and, through this, play a key part in achieving better financial outcomes for millions of savers.”

 Commenting on his appointment, Calum Cooper, Head of Pension Policy Innovation, says: “It’s an exciting time to get involved in pensions policy innovation. There’s a general election looming, DB schemes are at an inflection point, CDC is emerging and there’s a wall of pensions consultations out there reflecting a political desire to deploy pensions capital to deliver more for stakeholders. There are also huge adequacy and equity challenges in DC. The stars of change are aligning, and I’m looking forward to working with others across the industry to shape a better, sustainable future in pensions.”
