IS YOUR PENSION FUND READY FOR THE NEXT TURNING POINT IN THE BUSINESS CYCLE?

Companies are used to addressing the myriad of challenges they face and still achieving success outcomes. So are we. Mercer’s clients have access to a wide range of specialist advisers, allowing them to benefit from our range of expertise — all under one roof. Mercer constantly innovates, which means our solutions evolve to meet the changing needs of our clients. 

How Mercer Can Help

Whether you’re starting out on a journey in order to set objectives or looking to take the final step, there are a number of ways Mercer can help: 

     TOOLS & RESEARCH

 

•  Our state-of-the-art modelling tools (link to PFaroe) illustrate the costs and risks of various funding scenarios.

•  Our Innovation, Policy and Research group works full time to research the impact of economic trends on funding and liaises with the government and the Pensions Regulator on pension policy.

•  Our regular valuation survey (link to press release) helps sponsors to understand how their funding approaches compare to their peers’ and the market in general. 

         ADVICE

 

•  Our team of specialists integrates seamlessly across funding, investment and covenant.

•  We consider a range of liability management options as a way to mitigate funding requirements, reduce risk and contributions, and provide better outcomes for members.

•  Our asset-backed financing specialists were some of the first to advise on asset-backed financing vehicles as a way to mitigate funding and cash requirements. Our expertise in this area means we can develop solutions that benefit sponsors and trustees alike.

    SOLUTIONS

 

•  Our Cash-Flow-Driven Financing (CDF) solution (link to CDF page) has won awards for the most innovative integrated funding and investment solution.

•  Our DB Buyout Zone package aligns the administration, funding and investment of your scheme with a goal of reaching buyout within three to five years. 

•  Partnering with our sister company, Marsh (link to Marsh site), we have brokered a number of surety bond structures to provide sponsors with lower cash contributions and trustees with additional security.
