We also provide services to charities, non-profit companies and contractors more generally across the public sector.

Pension funds are subject to increasingly complex rules; public sector funds also have their own regulations, statutory requirements and guidance making them distinct in many ways from those in the private sector.

Our specialist team recognises the unique nature of these funds and the regulatory environment which governs them. We provide clear, pragmatic and practical advice with fast turnaround times to all parties involved with these funds.

In addition to actuarial services, we provide consultancy and support services for benefit administration assisting with fast turnaround times to all parties involved with these funds, supporting and complementing your in-house services and staff. We also provide services to local pension boards and their members, including partnering with CIPFA to provide support and training to meet and maintain their required levels of knowledge and understanding.     

We look after over 20% of LGPS Funds across the breadth of the UK.

In addition to our LGPS Funds we also provide services to Police Authorities, Fire & Rescue Services, NHS Trust Funds and various employers who participate in public sector schemes, such as the Principal Civil Service Scheme.
