The top challenges to becoming a better actuarial consultant


As the pensions world undergoes dramatic changes, with defined benefit (DB) schemes reaching maturity, the role of the actuarial consultant is changing. Trustees are now expecting actuarial consultants to perform multiple roles, be it business partner, service provider, strategic adviser or outsourced administrator.

Avoiding the pitfalls of GMP equalisation

Five months after the High Court judgment on guaranteed minimum pensions (GMP), companies and trustees are starting to get to grips with the steps needed to meet their new legal obligations. The ruling in the Lloyds Banking Group case means schemes must correct benefits built up in the 1990s to ensure equal treatment between men and women.

On top of the recently introduced cold calling ban and the FCA’s ScamSmart campaign, there have been continued calls for the removal or modification of scheme members’ statutory right to a defined benefit (DB) pension transfer, which would create an extra layer of protection but would also take away a key member option.
