Trustee Director

corporate transactions • investment strategy • pension scheme closure

Andy Bakewell

Andy has a wide-ranging role involving all aspects of trusteeship, including attending trustee meetings, marketing to professional bodies, dealing with new business and liaising with third party providers such as administrators, actuaries, accountants, legal advisers and insurance companies.


Andy has been with us for over 30 years of his professional career, more recently being involved with pension trustee boards where the sponsoring employers are involved in, or are contemplating corporate transactions. This has involved complex negotiations with employers, the commissioning of independent business reviews and in-depth consultations with The Pensions Regulator (TPR) and Pension Protection Fund (PPF).

As a further consequence of such strategic change, Andy has been involved in many exercises to address the whole issue of the investment strategy, especially where the schemes have been closed to new entrants.

Andy also has much experience in cases involved in litigation and was instrumental in bringing the case of TSL v Dubery to the Court of Appeal (CoA).

Away from work, Andy is a big music fan, with his favourite bands including Led Zeppelin, Faces and Pink Floyd. He also plays the guitar for his own enjoyment (maybe not so much for his neighbours), makes and customises electric guitars and designs and builds stage sets for his local amateur dramatics group. Any other spare time is usually spent exploring the UK in his VW camper van!


Andy has worked in pensions since 1989, gaining invaluable knowledge and experience that he can share with the entire team.
