Jonathan Wolff

Partner, Head of Covenant Services at Lane Clark & Peacock


Bio - Tell us a bit about yourself.: Jonathan joined LCP to head up its Covenant Services practice in early 2016. He has consulted in this area for around 15 years and has gained extensive experience in providing a full range of covenant advice to both trustees and corporate clients alike. In 2013, he completed a six-month secondment to the Pensions Regulator as a Business Analyst, which he found invaluable in enabling him to provide regulatory insights to clients following his return to a professional advisory role.

Jonathan is a Chartered Accountant, having qualified with the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales in 2005, and prior to focusing on covenant services he worked in corporate restructuring. Prior to entering the world of work, Jonathan went to a local secondary comprehensive and then on to the University of Sheffield to study for a degree in Economics and Politics.

Jonathan believes that he has got to where he is today through a mixture of "a little bit of luck and some hard work". When he first qualified he says that he didn't know the first thing about defined benefit pensions, but through falling into a few projects early in his career he learnt how interesting some of the situations could be and what a great industry it is to work in!

Jonathan is proud to work for LCP because people come first and the firm has superb networks, including a well-established and influential LGBT+ network, all of which do great work to try and make the workplace fairer and more inclusive for everyone. Jonathan believes that the world is a better place when diversity and inclusion is embraced; he has come to learn over the last few years that it is one thing to personally hold these views but that so much more can be achieved if people stand up and be counted to promote these values as far as they can.

Outside of work he is keen on playing sport when he can and in particular cricket, where he plays for his local village team on Sundays in the summer. He also loves spending time with his young family.

Jonathan comments that:

"I work with lots of immensely talented and passionate LGBT+ colleagues at LCP and I am proud to be able to support them in any way I can. To make it clear to all that I am an ally is important to me, and this opportunity to be a Project 1000 Role Model will help to make my support more visible".
