Surrey Pension Fund , Strategic Finance Manager (Pensions)
Neil is Strategic Finance Manager at Surrey County Council with responsibility for the Surrey Pension Fund. He leads the team that won the Fund Governance of the Year Award in the 2018 LAPF Investment Awards.
Along with its eleven partner funds, Surrey is part of the Border to Coast asset pool. Transitioning of assets moves on a pace and continues to be an exciting and challenging project.
Neil is the independent member of the Local Pension Board of the London Borough of Hounslow and a member of the PLSA Policy Board; he chairs the London pension officers group.
He has a degree in history and is (still) a season ticket holder at QPR, his academic background allowing him to understand that they have always been hopeless. Neil is the father to twin sixteen-year-old boys, who are both effortlessly cool, much more than their Dad (not a great benchmark admittedly).
