Wai, who is one of our Sole Trustee specialists, joined Capital Cranfield in June 2023. He brings more than 10 years’ trustee experience and has also acted as a Scheme Secretary.

His trustee work includes chairing an audit and risk committee for several years, funding and valuation processes, investment reviews and projects, such as GMP equalisation, trivial commutations and member communications. Wai firmly believes that best outcomes are achieved by working collaboratively with key stakeholders and advisers.
