We provide a full range of services for corporate sponsors in relation to defined benefit (DB) and defined contribution (DC) pension schemes and other benefits, we advise over 15% of the FTSE350 companies with a DB scheme.

We bring clarity to complex issues such as pensions buy-outs, M&A, financing and cost management, helping you make informed and timely decisions for the benefit of your company.

Our consultants’ extensive knowledge is backed by a commitment to research and a suite of proprietary online tools and software that enable us to offer unique insights and a personalised, flexible service for our clients. An experienced partner will assemble a bespoke team, tailored to your exact needs, and will remain personally involved at all levels of the work.

Sponsors of DB schemes

Our expert actuarial and investment advice can help you make sense of scheme funding valuation negotiations, liability transfers, investment and de-risking strategies, mergers and acquisitions, and PPF levy advice.

We work solely in your interests as scheme sponsor, to avoid potential conflicts. However, our extensive experience advising trustees of other schemes helps us to anticipate emerging issues, leading to smoother negotiations.

Employers with DC schemes

Through our specialised DC consultancy, we advise employers in delivering appropriate DC pension strategies to attract, motivate and retain staff.  Our experienced communications team can help you promote those benefits in print, online or face to face to maximise engagement with your workforce.

Wellbeing

Our wellbeing team provides consultancy, administration and re-broking services on all health and risk policies. We also have an innovative market leading wellbeing solution called BWell which focuses around analysis, prevention and intervention. Our philosophy to wellbeing and the benefits associated with wellbeing centres around building a solution bespoke to our clients and their culture that benefits the employee through protection, education and engagement but also provides a real return to the employer on their benefits investment.

Executive pensions

Our executive pensions service offers advice to employers on tax-efficient pension provision for directors and senior executives. Working with HR, finance teams and remuneration committees, we can help develop retirement strategies for the mutual benefit of you and your staff.

Our growing client base includes medium-sized companies as well as larger firms and multinationals based in the UK and Europe.
