Shifting sands
- for corporate sponsors


Welcome to our third annual report into pensions issues for corporate sponsors

Our new report describes how Covid-19, economic headwinds and regulatory forces are all putting pressure on corporate sponsors. It is now more crucial than ever for companies to take a proactive approach to managing their DB pensions journey in a way that considers corporate objectives in the light of these pressures.

Read the report

The report focuses on four key sections:

  • Managing corporate pensions in the current environment 
  • Investment: sponsors to take the initiative 
  • Hot topics for corporate sponsors
  • Preparing for the year-end

“Many sponsors and schemes are in a hugely different place today to where they were at the start of 2020. Add in the raft of legislative changes and it is crucial that companies now revisit their pensions strategy and take a proactive approach to implementing a journey plan which considers their corporate objectives and risk tolerance.”

explains Gordon Watchorn, Partner and Head of Corporate Consulting and co-author of the report.

How we can help

Contingent funding approaches are rapidly becoming more widespread. They can be a great way to protect member benefits as well as the shareholders and other creditors of the sponsoring employer.

We help sponsors of pension schemes understand and manage the costs and risks associated with supporting their current and legacy pension schemes as well as other employee benefits.

Whether to enter a DB Consolidator is a complex decision. Sponsors and Trustees must be sure it is the right decision for their scheme and its members. We can help.

We work with you and your finance team to ensure that your ongoing statutory duties and compliance exercises are done quickly, efficiently and accurately.

We help pension scheme trustees and sponsors to determine the ultimate destination for their scheme and help them put together a plan to get there, including how to effectively manage the risks they face along the way.
