Headed up by Director, Karen Robinson, we have been helping businesses comply with increasingly complex legislation over the last 12 years, and at the same time, educating and advising scheme members throughout their journey to a successful retirement.
We manage over 50 employer schemes covering in excess of 5,000 employees and a combined £230m in member funds under management.
Make your corporate pension an effective business partner.
We all know your people are a key asset. To recruit and retain good people, you need a pension scheme that gives them the right outcomes but also meets your requirements as an employer.
Company obligations are increasingly complex and result in ever-more financial burden and responsibility. We can give you corporate pension advice to help you make sense of this and make sure your scheme is the best fit at both employer and member level.
We will come in and do a full health check. Our comprehensive report will propose a long term strategic plan to suit your company.
Once appointed we will deliver a first class governance and compliance service and agree the best approach to ensure all your employees truly value the provision you make on their behalf. We will work closely with your payroll, pension and HR teams to help implement our recommendations. We will also make sure that systems are in place to ensure you continue to be fully compliant on an ongoing basis.
It’s not unusual that employees just see their pension as deduction out of their monthly pay, often failing to appreciate its full value. We can deliver group workshops to help members make proactive decisions to improve their retirement outcomes. We also offer individual consultations, making advice accessible to anyone that needs it.
Our approach is personal and face to face rather than just an online service. We’ll help members get their pension set up right from the start, explain how the funds are invested and confirm contribution levels. We can also provide an ongoing annual programme of employee meetings to update progress and clarify any issues.
We’ll support you in educating your members to get a proper understanding of pensions. There may also be scheme members that need more personal, bespoke advice as they approach significant lifetime events. We can help with this too within a very competitive fee structure.
Robust scheme governance
Corporate governance of your company pension scheme is designed to ensure best member outcomes in compliance with rigorous pension regulation and pensions best practice. Our governance work would comprise:
- A formal, annual review of the market, looking at scheme charges and benchmarking of your scheme performance
- Assessment of the on-going suitability of scheme default funds in relation to member demographics
- Advising on payroll, HR and auto enrolment compliance
- Review and feedback on member engagement
All of these elements will ensure you continue to comply with the constantly evolving nature of pension regulation.
