Andrew Allsopp: With our shared values, First Actuarial really does feel like home

First Actuarial has hired Andrew Allsopp, the former managing director of Quattro Pensions.

Allsopp, an actuary with more than 20 years' director-level experience, began his career at Hazell Carr, where he qualified as an actuary in 2001.

In 2002, he became a founding partner of Quattro Pensions and took on management and marketing responsibilities.

When Broadstone acquired Quattro Pensions in 2021, Allsopp led the negotiations and the sale process. Andrew then remained in place as a senior actuarial director until July last year.

As a scheme actuary, Allsopp has advised a range of clients on scheme funding, investments, company accounting, and mergers and acquisitions. He is also on the board of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries' Designated Professional Body.

Allsopp said the alignment of values was a motivating factor in his move to First Actuarial.

He explained: "With our shared values, First Actuarial really does feel like home. Their attitude towards both clients and staff is very much like the business I built at Quattro. First Actuarial say they simply want happy clients and happy staff – treating everyone fairly and always doing the best for clients. That sums it up. It's professional and friendly in equal measure."

Allsopp added: "I'm excited about the work I'll be doing at First Actuarial. Every scheme brings an interesting new angle. And in an ever-changing environment, there will always be fresh challenges. I'm also looking forward to my involvement in new business activities and helping to grow the firm."
