Geoff successfully finalized, in two weeks, a project that had been proving nigh impossible for us to complete. Throughout this period Geoff proved himself as a resourceful professional and a particularly great mentor when it came to helping us understand the complex nature of actuarial output. He has a unique ability to turn complex information into plain English, both verbally and in his well researched and presented documentation. In summary we have been totally impressed by Geoff and would not hesitate to recommend his services.

Geoff has been our scheme actuary for many years. He is always helpful and knowledgeable on the latest views from the profession and is able to explain complex financial issues clearly to both the company and the trustees. His reporting is similarly clear and insightful. I would have no hesitation in recommending Geoff’s actuarial services.
We were introduced to Mr Arnold by a third party. We operate a prepaid funeral scheme which is administered by Trustees. We commissioned Mr Arnold to prepare a comprehensive actuarial report for the scheme as required by the Funeral Planning Association. We found Mr Arnold to be extremely professional, thorough and very knowledgeable with regard to the recent legislation governing the requirements to be addressed by the report. Mr Arnold acted promptly at all times and carried out extensive research which enabled him to reach reasoned and well summarized conclusions. We would have no hesitation in recommending Mr Arnold.
... on a personal basis, I would like to say how good you were to work with as a Scheme Actuary for the 13 months ending December 2008. I particularly appreciated the help you gave to the junior actuaries and the different perspective you brought onto things. It was great that you hit the ground running when you joined us and were able to start adding value immediately.
... The work you did for us has been very well received by the exec team and has put us in great position to push on and launch at month end.
In addition you made a really positive and lasting impression with the team and they send their regards.
