Julia is a co-founder and Director of Pi Partnership. She was previously Chairman of one of the Raising Standard of Pensions Administration working parties that became the Pensions Administration Standards Association (PASA). She has specialised over the last 10 years in the delivery of scheme buy outs, including in 2017 as Scheme Secretary to The Former Registered Dock Workers Pension Fund ensuring its successful £725m second buy-in, which not only enabled the full buy-out but also resulted in a small uplift to all benefits.
Most recently she has acted as project manager to a FTSE100 scheme buy-out overseeing all aspects of the latter stages of the buyout including the various complications arising from GMP equalisation and the various legislative updates.
