David joined OAC in August 2011 with 16 years’ experience of working in life offices. Since joining, David has been involved with all aspects of Solvency I and II valuations (assets and liabilities), own risk and solvency assessments (and in their past guises), profitability and pricing calculations, loss assessment calculations (including expert witness cases) and research and communication.
As part of the preparation for Solvency II, David was a member of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries’ Life Solvency II Current Issues Committee. Internally, David was particularly involved in assessing the reporting requirements (Pillar III) and continues to monitor and share key developments in this area alongside capital requirements.
David is responsible for technical research at OAC, keeping abreast of technical and other developments, disseminating the knowledge around the firm and to clients.
His early career focused on completing valuations for pension schemes, embedded values and the Pensions Review, before David specialised in FSA statutory valuations and the management of with-profits business. David broadened his experience in his role as the actuarial representative on a Legal Development Forum and assisting in the preparation of expert witness cases.
David is keen to build on his knowledge with recent activities in the areas of data science, data visualisation and climate change.
Outside of work, David has an interest in various sports in an attempt to stave off middle age (not there yet) and keeping up with two young children.
