Biography of Ralph McClelland
Ralph McClelland


Ralph McClelland is a partner at Sackers, the UK's leading law firm for the pensions and retirement savings industry. He is a finance and investment specialist with twelve years' experience in the pensions arena and has wide experience of advising schemes about the legal aspects of their investment arrangements.

He also has expertise in fiduciary management and delegated consulting products, having advised on around 20 such appointments over the last five years. He regularly assists clients with the appointment of segregated investment managers and advises on the negotiation of fund documentation including investment management, stock lending and custody agreements, ISDA and GMRA documentation.
