Sir Bryan, who is also an honorary fellow of the Institute of Actuaries, will assess whether the sponsoring employer of an occupational pensions scheme is insolvent, whether its assets have been reduced through dishonesty and then decide on compensation levels depending on the age profile of pensioners.
