Pensions & benefits

We help trustees to deliver the best possible outcomes for the members of their DB pension schemes.

Trustees make important decisions which affect the lives of their members and their families for years to come. We work with trustees to make sure the scheme does not lose focus and keeps abreast of the huge amount of guidance and regulation. 

Trustees need to understand diverse subjects, such as journey planning, investment, funding and risk management, all in the context of a robust understanding of the sponsor’s covenant, to get their scheme to its destination. They are also expected to work collaboratively with their sponsor to help ensure all members get the benefits they have been promised.

How we can help

Our clients and their pension schemes are unique. The better we know you, the better the solutions that we will provide. We will help you work out the end-game that is most suitable for you, and the best journey plan to get you there, whilst recognising and managing your key risks to that journey. We pride ourselves on the strong relationships we have with our clients.

We aim to walk in your shoes so that we understand what you need to make the best decisions for your circumstances and then deliver accordingly. We are adept at distilling complexity into simple messages, identifying what is important and giving clear advice on how to achieve your goals.

We understand the importance of covenant and how this intersects with funding and investment decisions – and we step back to look at your scheme and sponsoring employer through a wide lens, allowing us to give well-rounded advice.

We use cutting edge technology that enables us to help you make better decisions in less time. Our advice is supported by our innovative technology, such as LCP Visualise, which provides funding, investment and covenant analytics.
