Lizzie Potter

Associate Consultant

LCP

I joined LCP as a graduate in the London office having worked for a year in management consultancy. I was particularly drawn to LCP because of its young, vibrant atmosphere and excellent study package to help with completing professional exams.

Working in the DC (defined contribution) team, we provide investment and governance advice to a range of DC pension schemes. We design investment strategies for different schemes based on the profile of their members, advise on whether members are getting the best value or services available from providers, and we are at the forefront of developments within the pensions industry. As an analyst I use our in-house analysis software to measure performance of scheme assets and how changes in investments can affect a member’s projected retirement pot. I also help produce a range of advice for clients to facilitate decision-making that could affect thousands of members.

I am also involved in DC-focused investment research. Having spent time as a graduate rotating round several different asset class research teams, I settled in DC research. We meet and evaluate different asset managers and funds that are available for DC schemes, and research new, innovative investment solutions that might benefit the DC space. One of the best things about LCP is how much it cares about its people. As a member of the Women’s Network, which is just one part of the wider Diversity & Inclusion group, we run internal and external events to help increase awareness and create an equal, supportive environment at LCP.

My advice to future graduates… Don’t be put off applying if you don’t have prior knowledge or experience of finance or pensions. We have a broad range of backgrounds here from Engineering to Biology – not everybody studied maths/economics!
