Amanda Latham

Associate and Policy & Strategy Lead

I’m white Australian and went to state and private schools. I studied Law, Politics and Sociology at universities in South Australia and Queensland before moving to the UK in 2005. I completed my postgrad studies in Public Policy and Management at Birkbeck in London in 2017.

I joined Barnett Waddingham in 2020 to work across the firm developing our response to strategic policy priorities and I’m part of our Sustainable Investment Team. I was a formerly at The Pensions Regulator (TPR) for nearly 9 years working across a number of policy areas including trustee governance, consolidation and sustainable investment. I’m currently a member of BW’s D&I Steering Group, working with colleagues across the business to build our employee networks, and developing and delivering our D&I strategy.

I’ve spent many years championing inclusion both within organisations and through collaborative efforts with others. While at TPR, I worked with colleagues to establish the Womens and LGBT+ Networks. And in 2018 I co-founded the Young Pension Trustee Network with some friends. The group aims to promote a more inclusive and diverse industry as a response to the lack of diversity in pension trusteeship and the seeming inaccessibility of roles to younger applicants. The group now has over 100 supporters and hosts regular networking events; some of our network have also been successful in moving in to trustee roles.

Outside of work I’m a charity trustee and currently hold the role of Vice Chair on the board of Age UK in West Sussex, Brighton & Hove, where I can use my time and expertise to support my community, while my role gives me insight into how people are living later life today.
