Sanjay Gupta

Senior Director

I am Scheme Actuary to five schemes ranging from £150 million to over £1 billion, and also advise a small number of scheme sponsors. I particularly enjoy establishing strong relationships with my clients.

I have been working closely with my clients to help them through these challenging financial conditions.  Understanding the impact on the scheme sponsor is a key part of this and I have been working closely with trustees to understand the relationship between funding and the strength of employer covenant, particularly where there is an overseas parent.

Recent projects have also included understanding the implications of closure to future accrual, robust funding discussions with employers through to designing “journey plans” to improve the longer term security of members’ benefits (including considering de-risking and liability management solutions).

I hold various leadership roles with Willis Towers Watson including leading our Trustee Consulting issues team, and am therefore well linked-in with WTW experts on all matters affecting trustee clients.  I also represent WTW on Council for The Society of Pensions Professionals (SPP), a broad based industry group.
