Our actuarial consultants can help you set up a new pension scheme, get more value from your existing one, or wind it up
We set up First Actuarial in 2004 to build a business that people trust. We provide pension services for trustees and employers that put our clients’ needs and interests first.
From the beginning, we drew on decades of experience to take a fresh approach to pensions consultancy. With our in-depth expertise, we can challenge conventional thinking where necessary to get the best possible outcomes for scheme trustees, employers and members.
We bring clarity to actuarial processes and scheme member experiences by making pensions as simple as possible and only as complex as they need to be.
We can help you meet your scheme’s obligations by striking the right balance between investment risk and reward, and company contributions.

What sets us apart from our competitors?
We tailor our pensions advice to your needs and objectives
There’s no standard pension scheme. Each comes with its own strengths and challenges, and our goal is to put in place the most suitable plans and strategies for your needs. There’s no average scheme member either. We explain options in a variety of ways so every member can make decisions based on a sound understanding.
We focus on our clients, and their pension scheme members
We don’t waste our energies on meaningless awards or promotions. If you see First Actuarial in the news, it’s because of the hard work we put into supporting trustees, employers and members. Client satisfaction is what matters to us. Our time is best spent focusing on your pension scheme to deliver the services you really need.
We get great results by challenging conventional thinking
Whether we’re working out the right level of investment risk for your scheme or managing your liabilities, our experienced advisers aren’t afraid to make recommendations that go against the grain. We listen carefully to what our clients want to achieve, and find cost-effective ways to help. We often use industry standard methods, but where it’s in the best interests of our clients we’re not afraid to adopt a fresh approach.

Cannot compliment First Actuarial highly enough. Game-changing advice in a world of huge uncertainty!
Staff are professional and knowledgeable, and have the ability to explain complex technical areas. They are also super friendly, approachable and flexible, which made working together so rewarding.
I was impressed by the way in which they handled the LDI issue for us, for example answering trustee questions at an in-person meeting.
