Simon joined PIMFA in November 2017 as a Senior Policy Adviser with a focus on public policy and long-term savings. His current focus centres around the application of the Regulator’s consumer investment strategy as well as broader opportunities for the UK’s regulatory framework following our exit from the European Union. He has previously worked at the National Employment Savings Trust (NEST) and the Treasury in a variety of roles working on a number of issues including automatic enrolment, pension freedoms and the UK’s response to the financial crisis.
