Defined Benefit pension schemes – This is what we do to help
We give you high quality actuarial services at a reasonable price
Many trustees and employers are fed up before First Actuarial arrives. They’ve paid a high price for poor services. Our clients tell us that we exceed their expectations, with reasonable fees that we stick to.
We’re experts in administration
Administration is easy to do badly and hard to do well. Ours is no factory operation. We give our administrators the freedom and the time to get the calculations right, and we check them over and over again to make sure.
We give you common sense investment consulting
We strike the right balance between risk and return. We use our specially-developed software to show you how changes in investment strategy can impact the risks you run and the returns you expect.
We give employers good ideas on how best to manage their liabilities
We work with you to manage liabilities in an open way. With our clear and comprehensive information, your members can choose the right options for their needs. And as an employer you’ll know you’ve acted in good conscience.
We’re the human face of pensions
Pensions are about people. We’re good at talking and listening. We’ll restore confidence in your scheme by communicating in plain English, and helping scheme members choose the options that meet their needs.

We don’t prioritise speed over accuracy
