One big question currently facing many pension fund trustees is how to keep offering the right pension benefits while still controlling costs.
Thanks to falling investment returns, changes to accounting standards and actuarial factors, many companies have switched from final salary schemes to money purchase schemes. Others that have hung onto their final salary schemes do not know if they can afford to do so in the future.
Although there is no easy solution, our experience and expertise means we can help our clients arrive at the best answer.
