Andrew Penketh

Head of Pension Funds
I head up Crowe UK's award winning Pensions Group and I have enjoyed 25 years experience of providing audit and advisory services to my pension scheme clients as a chartered accountant.

I am active in promoting good governance in the pension sector and I work with trustees and pensions administrators, helping them to develop robust risk management, internal controls and strategic assurance frameworks which add value. I have advised a wide range of schemes, some with £billions of assets under management, major pensions administrators and master trusts.
