The PS1712 legislation has been effective from the start of March 2018 and Stewart enjoyed working on this project because of its imminence and relevance to the annuity market, a market he finds more interesting as he gets older!

His role in the project was the provision of samples for the Annuity Comparator Standard, the setting up of the samples became a very iterative process as it generated lots of questions and discussion. A message that is a collation summary of quotations alongside statistical metadata, is a relatively complex message and  we worked well as a team evolving the schema design to address the issues that emerged with the creation of the samples.
