Martin Collins

Martin is a trustee to several pension schemes and offers technical support to colleagues on investment and actuarial issues.


Martin became a professional trustee at with us in 2020 in order to return to a role of taking responsibility for the financial futures of the public.

Beginning his pensions career in 1989 with a summer trainee actuary job at Mercer Colin was inspired to become a Scheme actuary and did that for 16 years with Pointon York, Aon and WTW.

Martin then completed a four-year spell in investment banking solutions at Santander Martin, before joining Lloyds Banking Group in 2010 as it stood close to collapse after the financial crisis. As a treasury and investment director at Lloyds, he secured the pensions of 300,000 members with a £14bn collateral pool and then saved the bank £20bn in capital through successful pension investment and funding strategies. This restored the bank’s health enough to restart dividends, which lead directly to the government’s full recovery of their £20bn bailout injection. Martin later returned to a senior consulting and relationship role at KPMG in 2016.

Outside of work Martin spends most of his time with his children. He also keeps bees, partly to improve his local environment… but mostly because he really likes honey!
