We’re independent, so we don’t sell products, or a “one size fits all” pensions strategy.
We just give you the best possible advice. We work closely with our clients to understand your objectives and goals (both short term and long term), and put together creative solutions to achieve them. We only suggest things that are designed to help you meet your goals.
How we help sponsoring employers
Helping employers agree and work within clear pension principles makes getting things done far more effective and efficient – and it also helps keep pension scheme trustees on board with your pensions journey planning. We work closely alongside companies to make sure the advice we give meets both short term and long term goals within wider business objectives, and ultimately help reduce pension risk and volatility.
We focus time and resources on the things that will benefit your business the most, whether that be saving money, reducing risk and volatility, or ensuring your ongoing pension offering is aligned to your wider corporate principles. We take real pride in ensuring that our strategy advice is totally clear and communicated in plain English to help you make decisions for your business in what can sometimes be a complex technical area.
For a joined up pensions strategy around the world, we can advise on pension and post-retirement commitments in any jurisdiction through our international practice and network of partner firms. This flexible structure allows you to access experts local to your business whilst ensuring global principles are maintained and liaising with a single point of contact.
How we help trustees
Whatever your objectives, we’ll help you put together a strategy to make them reality. Our broad experience means we can suggest innovative funding, investment and de-risking ideas that are designed to help you secure member benefits. Our clients value the clarity of our advice, which makes it easy for trustees to take ideas to the scheme sponsors. And we’ll help you communicate any changes to your members so that they understand them and can take any action necessary.
We’ll help you communicate and negotiate with the scheme sponsor in a constructive and collaborative way when it comes to agreeing pension principles, or making any changes to the scheme, providing you with all the information and support you need to ensure the best possible outcomes for members.
Our latest thinking
How we can help
We help sponsors of pension schemes understand and manage the costs and risks associated with supporting their current and legacy pension schemes as well as other employee benefits.
We help trustees understand and monitor the employer covenant.
LCP Sonar, our risk profiling tool, benchmarks your scheme against other pension schemes, covering covenant, funding and investment risks. You can quickly see how your scheme’s risk profile compares to others and think about the key risks for you.
Our tax tools help you communicate the latest tax changes to your employees in a straightforward way.
We help pension scheme trustees and sponsors to determine the ultimate destination for their scheme and help them put together a plan to get there, including how to effectively manage the risks they face along the way.
We help our clients identify technological and data led solutions to solve the issues they face. From risk modelling for pension clients to providing insight to the energy market, we use the latest cutting-edge technology to help clients make better and more informed business decisions.
We help trustees achieve their strategic goals, with solution-led, appropriate advice.
