Veolia appoints Barnett Waddingham as Scheme Actuary

We are proud to announce our appointment as Scheme Actuary to the Veolia UK Pension Plan and the Veolia Energy Pension Scheme.

Following a rigorous tender process, we were selected to provide actuarial services to Veolia’s defined benefit divisions of the Schemes with combined assets of around £1bn and around 9,000 members.

Leader in environmental services, Veolia provides a comprehensive range of waste, water and energy management services. By focussing on the manufacture of green products and energy, Veolia can help their customers reduce their carbon footprint.

Robert Hawkes has been appointed as the Scheme Actuary.

 “This appointment builds on the continued success of our strong team and our wide range of expertise.  It is important to deliver a tailored and bespoke service and we are very much looking forward to working with the Veolia Pensions Department and the Trustees to build on the continued successes of the Schemes.”

 “We value highly our advisers to our pension schemes and work closely with the Scheme Actuary in managing the risks and opportunities for the schemes. Robert Hawkes and the team at Barnett Waddingham impressed us throughout the tender process and have settled quickly into the role. Their communication and consultancy skills have excelled from the outset, tailoring their approach to our needs.”
