Local Pensions Partnership appoints chief risk officer


Local Pensions Partnership (LPP) has appointed Tom Richardson as chief risk officer.

He will oversee all aspects of LPP’s financial, investment and operational risk management and be a member of both the main board and the LPP investments board.
LPP chief executive Susan Martin says: “As reform of the LGPS enters the next stage we are delighted to have a chief risk officer of Tom’s calibre join us. His experience in improving business governance, processes and systems will prove valuable as we continue to grow the LPP.
“We firmly believe that effective management of a pension fund requires knowledge and management of both sides of the balance sheet – investment and risk – in order to make deficit reduction a realistic and achievable proposition, which makes the CRO role especially important.”
Richardson says: “I look forward to the challenges ahead, not only for the LPP but the industry as a whole. The ambition and aim of what we are trying to achieve is exciting and challenging, but done right can make a real impact.”
Richardson has worked in a variety of senior roles for Maple Financial Group, a privately held, global financial organisation, providing banking, securities and financial services to financial institutions, corporations and individuals throughout the world.
Richardson replaced Dr Angela Smith, who was working as interim.
