How Karina is building a better working world

“I work with corporates and trustees to manage the risk of defined benefit pensions schemes for UK corporates, whilst protecting the position for pension scheme members. This ensures that a significant proportion of UK employees secure their future beyond their working lives and through their retirement, creating a better working world.”
