 Commenting on the appointments, Alan Collins, Head of Trustee Advisory Services at Spence, said: “Graham and David are both excellent hires for our team. Graham brings a wealth of actuarial experience and we are delighted to welcome David back to our Belfast office, having begun his career with us a number of years ago. Their experience further bolsters our actuarial capability and we expect them to make a material contribution to the schemes we work with and are appointed to.”

 Graham Newman, Scheme Actuary, commented: “I have been extremely impressed by both the capability and expertise that I have seen within the Spence team. The firm’s ambitions are evident as it continues to build its profile and reputation in the industry, positioning itself as one of the leading providers of pensions advisory and data services to pensions schemes in the UK. I look forward to working with the team and my new clients.”
