We provide the full range of actuarial services to the trustees of defined benefit (DB) pension schemes based on a culture of providing all of our clients with a high quality, professional service through strong personal relationships and tailored solutions while remaining competitive on fees.

This range of actuarial services includes advising on:

  • actuarial valuations using our proprietary interactive system, 'Illuminate' which enables the trustees to analyse the relationship between funding, investment and employer covenant;  funding negotiations with the employer; liaison with The Pensions Regulator; and any other valuation services as required by trustees
  • interim funding reviews, including the option for trustees to use our on-line tools to monitor changes to the funding level (and/or buy-out level and other funding measures) in between the formal valuations
  • integrated funding and investment strategies and de-risking frameworks
  • longevity analyses
  • scheme amendments, mergers, discontinuance, annuity buy-ins, buy-outs and scheme wind-up
  • employer cessation events and apportionment arrangements
  • actuarial factors for commutations, early/late retirements, transfers and other individual calculations
  • scheme governance and trustee training
  • changes in legislation, codes of practice and market practice

Significant experience:
  • we have over 50 Scheme Actuaries who are appointed to over 370 DB pension schemes
  • we provide tailored services to scheme trustees with fund sizes ranging from £1 million to £5 billion
  • the full range of services is provided from each of our eight offices across the UK
