We helped Lend Lease to redesign their DC offering following the introduction of Freedom and Choice so that the scheme was competitive and future-proofed.
Pensions & benefits
DC schemes are a significant investment, so it’s important to make sure that you get the best value out of your scheme and ensure the best possible outcomes for your members.
Because we are independent, we have no allegiance to any providers or fund managers which means that you will get whole of market advice and the most appropriate solutions for your circumstances.
How we can help
Our team of DC experts work closely with our clients to give the right advice at the right time. Clients tell us that they appreciate our commitment to giving them relevant information about regulatory changes, market developments and new ideas, so they can plan well ahead. Our team work closely together to make sure our advice takes a 360 degree view of your scheme so that investment advice can be implemented without adversely affecting communications and administration (and vice versa). And we’ll make governance as practical and proportionate as it can be, so you can focus your efforts on the things that make the most difference.
We use our market-leading technology, including LCP Horizon, to make sure you always have the information at your fingertips to make decisions in real-time. If you need to make changes, our expert project management and research capability will make them easy to implement.
How we can help companies
If you run a DC pension scheme for your company, you’ll want to be assured that your costs are controlled, you minimise your risks, and your members understand the benefits you’re providing. Because we are industry experts who take the time to understand your scheme and company in detail, we can help you identify threats and opportunities to your business in advance, whether in relation to auto-enrolment, the National Living Wage or changes to pension legislation.
How we can help trustees
Those who look after trust-based DC schemes will want to ensure the best possible outcomes for members. We can make governance as easy as possible, allowing you to focus your time on areas where it can really make a difference. We will work with you to ensure your investment strategy delivers your objectives and your member communications are tailored, timely and to the point.
