Our approach is designed to ensure that we work with you to build a strategy that meets your specific needs, with greater certainty of outcomes.

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.
