In this blog, Ian Farrand explains how offering pensions levelling can provide a welcoming additional flexibility for DB members whilst also helping to reduce the DB costs and risks borne by sponsoring employers.
I help a range of trustees and pension scheme sponsors understand and tackle the wide ranging issues they face in the ever-changing world of pensions.
Through the provision of clear and pragmatic advice, tailored to reflect each client’s specific circumstances, I enjoy helping sponsors and trustees work in collaboration and cut through to what really matters. I have particular expertise in long-term journey planning and helping trustees navigate through funding negotiations, including the use of contingent contributions and other contingent assets.
Away from work my 3 young daughters ensure there is little time for my sporting passion.
A measured approach in providing advice, which aims to satisfy the Trustee as a prerequisite, is balanced with considering the sponsors practical circumstances.
