We provide comprehensive, innovative, client focused investment consultancy services to Trustees, Employers, Charities, Local Authorities and Universities.  

Scheme members benefit most when their scheme has strong governance, with trustees, sponsors and their advisers working as a partnership to ensure benefits are paid as promised.

Strategic decisions are of paramount importance; time and resources spent here will contribute far more to achieving the best results than anywhere else. We believe the best strategic decisions are made by trustees who actively challenge and debate issues with their advisers. This leads to engaging discussions which drive our enthusiasm for our work.

We enjoy what we do and we aim to bring this enthusiasm to our discussions with you.  We work as a team with the trustees and sponsors, negating conflicts of interest, real or perceived, so that objectives are met efficiently. We hope that you can, as much as is possible, enjoy setting, monitoring and discussing your investment strategy with us.

 

“The complex strategy review on Inflation and Interest Rates in particular has delivered significant benefits to the Scheme and you were able to explain the complex investment strategy in a simple manner so that we could all understand and make an informed decision.”
