Lifestyle Article - Scheme Actuary Vicky Greenwood moves to First Actuarial


Scheme Actuary Vicky Greenwood has moved to First Actuarial from Isio. With a professional background that spans actuarial and professional trustee work, Vicky will provide trustee and employer services from the firm’s Manchester office.

 Vicky’s career started at Buck, where she worked as an actuarial student. She moved to Mitchell Consulting in a split role as trainee actuary and professional trustee. At KPMG, she then provided services to both trustees and employers as she advanced towards her Scheme Actuary certificate. Vicky is well known in the Greater Manchester area, not least because of her active involvement in the North West Actuarial Society.

 Vicky values the role that professional trustees play and looks forward to working closely with them at First Actuarial.

 She says: “With their knowledge and expertise, professional trustees can grasp difficult scheme issues quickly. That opens up better outcomes for schemes and members by freeing up time to work at a strategic level. I see First Actuarial as a firm that is unafraid to look at issues differently. That should reassure professional trustees that we’re looking at every option available to them and not playing to our own agenda.”

 It’s unsurprising, then, that Vicky’s move to First Actuarial was prompted by the firm’s culture.

 She says: “I like the way that First Actuarial is happy to challenge norms. There are some great characters with strong opinions at First Actuarial, which is celebrated rather than discouraged. That’s good for clients because lively debate brings out the strongest ideas and the most effective advice. There’s space to be your own adviser here, with the support of everyone around you, which is great.”

 At First Actuarial, Vicky will take on Scheme Actuary responsibilities, provide services to employers, and support the firm’s growth through new business opportunities.

 She says: “I really like looking at the art of the possible to find fresh ways of solving problems for employers. I’m not afraid of coming up with something different. Part of my role will be to develop alternative funding solutions to broaden our risk transfer services. There are more options in the market now besides approaching insurers, especially with so many schemes being in surplus.”
