The IFoA is delighted to announce that Brinley (Bryn) Davies is to become a peer in the House of Lords.
He is the first IFoA Fellow to enter either House of Parliament for more than 50 years. His peerage is in recognition of his expertise on pensions policy and for his service as an actuary, which saw him work principally for the trade union movement in order to improve and maintain standards of public and occupational pension provision. Bryn has been a Fellow since 1975 and is director of Union Pension Services (UPS) Ltd. He established UPS in 1989 as a consultancy on occupational pension schemes, primarily for trade unions. Bryn will sit on the Labour benches, where he will offer his expertise on many important pieces of legislation and public policy issues.
