We are pleased to announce the appointment of David Gordon to the role of senior review actuary at the IFoA.
Gordon comes to the IFoA with more than 30 years' experience in the pensions industry. He has worked with Willis Towers Watson throughout his career, advising numerous UK pension schemes and their sponsors on how best to deliver funding, investment and risk management.
Alongside client work, Gordon provides guidance to colleagues worldwide on best practice and professional issues. He is Willis Towers Watson's senior quality assurance representative under the IFoA's Quality Assurance Scheme and was voted the Actuarial Post's Pensions Actuary of the Year 2016.
Gordon will be heading up the IFoA's Actuarial Review Team, working with IFoA Executive colleagues, specialists and experts in the delivery of the Thematic Review Programme (bit.ly/2NYE1IM). The Thematic Review Programme was announced in September 2019 following proposals to monitor the quality of actuarial work.
The Thematic Review Programme will review how work is carried out by actuaries in practice, including review of the work itself, allowing the IFoA to share good practice with members and their employers. We are thrilled to have David Gordon joining the IFoA and look forward to welcoming him as a colleague at our Edinburgh offices from January 2020.
