By building a resilient strategy, we make sure you have the right assets to pay each benefit with confidence.
Impactful, impartial investment advice
As DB schemes mature and markets evolve, balancing the need to generate returns over the long-term, whilst ensuring there is a reliable source of cash to pay members’ benefits in the short-term, is a difficult juggling act. All without putting unnecessary strain on the sponsoring employer.
Making sure you have a clear, integrated funding and investment strategy is key. With the right balance of ‘Growth’, ‘Income’ and ‘Protection’ assets, our GrIP approach ensures you can deliver your members’ benefits with confidence.

As The Pensions Regulator continues to emphasise the importance of setting an appropriate Long Term Objective (LTO), the majority of trustees either plan to, or have already, reviewed the end goal for their DB pension scheme.
As a result of this increased focus on the end game, we’re seeing a shift in trustee behaviours. But are trustees properly considering all of the end game options available to them? And do they fully understand what they’re aiming for?
In this series our host Simon Jones explores the theme of Responsible Investment. He interviews a variety of experts to get their view on how we move forward and tackle this important issue. Guests have included Henrik Wold Nilsen of Storebrand Asset Management sharing his thoughts on climate aware investing, Faith Ward, Chief Responsible Investment Officer at Brunel Pensions Partnership dicussing the challenges the industry faces and Michael Bushnell, Managing Director at Lincoln Pensions, to talk about how climate risk can be considered when evaluating sponsor covenant.
