Senior Management

Mark Andrews APMI APFS CFP

Mark started his career working his way up the ladder at one of the country’s leading actuarial and employee benefits consultants, Noble Lowndes & Partners (which, through a succession of mergers is now part of Mercers).

Mark worked in all areas of pensions: administration, technical and consultancy.

In 1992, while still there, he completed his Associate of the Pensions Management Institute exams and subsequently went on to become a part-time tutor in various subjects. He was also once one of the youngest OPAS advisers in the country at the same time.

Since leaving Noble Lowndes Mark has worked for two other well known firms: KPMG and Latham, Crossley & Davis Chartered Accountants (now part of Baker Tilly).

Mark has continued with his professional studies by becoming an Associate of The Personal Finance Society as well as a Certified Financial Planner, for which Mark won the first ever award of the Jonathon Timms Memorial prize in 2000.

Mark is the MD and founder of Redswan. His early years in pensions gave him an excellent foundation on which to build and, later in his career, specialise in the self-administered market through his own companies since 2001.

Gareth Davies

Gareth has worked in the financial services industry his entire working career (more than 20 years).

He started his career with Manchester based Co-operative Insurance Society spending more than 10 years with this company. It was here that he trained and qualified as a financial adviser at the same time also completing his Financial Planning Certificate.

In subsequent years, in which time Gareth worked as a financial adviser within other firms, he worked towards and completed his Advanced Financial Planning Certificate with the subjects biased towards pensions. One particular notable achievement was passing the pensions module, G60, with distinction.

In 2004, Gareth decided to focus his career specifically in the area of self-administered pensions and accepted a role within the actuarial team at Santhouse Whittington.

In January 2006, Gareth accepted the offer of a senior position with Redswan. He is responsible for the day-to-day management of Redswan’s pension division in addition to managing and providing technical support to a portfolio of client accounts.

In his leisure time he enjoys travelling, football and languages – in particular Spanish, which he speaks fluently.
