This is how we do it
Our lead directors have significant senior level Pensions and HR Shared Services experience, across a broad range of employers, roles, pension schemes and projects. Chances are that if you have an ‘issue’, we will have seen something like it before.

Major projects that we have undertaken recently include scheme reviews, implementations and consolidations, administration out-sourcing and in-sourcing, reviews of member communications programmes, DC scheme governance (both reviews and ongoing provision), bulk transfers of DC members to master trusts (including provider selection and implementation), interim pensions manager roles, setting up, authorising and winding-up Master Trusts, scheme design and considerations for authorisation for a Collective Defined Contribution (CDC) scheme.

We are agile and responsive to your needs and can work in a style and at locations which suit you, to ensure that we work together in the most effective and efficient way.
We have no house views or management pressure to meet demanding fee income targets so we can call it as we see it, and we never sit on the fence. We don’t promote services that aren’t relevant and we won’t ‘reinvent wheels’ at our clients’ expense.
We always look for the simple rather than complicated, solution.
We have no ‘products’ or wider interests, so our objective is always to put your interests first to help you achieve the best outcome rather than being concerned with covering our own backs or maximising our future fee income.
Value for money
Our low overheads and lack of external shareholders mean we can provide blue-chip consultant quality and experience at a fraction of the cost you’d normally expect to pay. We can also be highly flexible and will always endeavour to find a fee structure to suit each client. We will always be transparent in our charging approach and will offer fixed fees wherever possible.
We are very used to working with both in-house teams and external consultants. We don’t attempt to compete with anyone – ‘point-scoring’ is just not our style – rather we enjoy sharing ideas for the greater good. If our skill set is not ideal for a specific project, we’ll say so rather than ‘bluffing’ our way through it.
Unlike most consultants, we won’t just turn up, espouse ‘good ideas’ and then leave clients to it. We are very happy to ‘get our hands dirty’ and assist with – or take on – the implementation of these ideas.
From high-level project management, liaising with your internal stakeholders, negotiating with external suppliers etc., we can act as ‘another pair of hands’ to get the changes that you want, in place.
We don’t just say, we do.
Pensions are of course a serious business, but combined with our levels of service which are second to none, we are fun to work with.
