Fiduciary management for DB pensions  

Helping you achieve better outcomes

Partnering with DB pensions

We take the time to get to understand your needs and objectives, helping you plan the strategy, and make the right decisions around delegation and investments. As first provider of full fiduciary management in the UK, we have a deep track record in helping schemes solve their challenges.  

How we can help

Whether you need to improve returns, develop a long-term strategy or manage cashflow requirements – our highly experienced team partners with you to help you achieve your objectives. 

You have the freedom to decide how much of the day-to-day management you want to delegate to us, whilst having access to the collective expertise from our team in terms of consulting, derivatives and investment management.

Solving your biggest challenges

We believe that the best tools and solutions should be accessible to all schemes we work with. All our clients have full access to our extensive investment and consulting expertise, empowering them through the full investment toolkit.

Through a variety of strategies, we can help defined benefit schemes solve some of their most acute challenges.

These include managing the interest rate and inflation risk in the scheme’s liabilities – without compromising the ability to generate the returns it needs.
