Defined Contribution services

Managing your Defined Contribution pension scheme with First Actuarial

We are First Actuarial and we’re on your side.

We help employers like you manage their Defined Contribution arrangements, and support your people with their retirement decisions.

Managing a Defined Contribution scheme can be risky, and any problems fall too easily on ordinary people. At First Actuarial, we research all the main Defined Contribution providers and master trusts. We can then optimise your Defined Contribution arrangements, reduce the risks and safeguard funds and savings.

No one works harder to improve Defined Contribution schemes. We work with government, industry bodies, providers and employers to make pension outcomes better for everyone.

Defined contribution pension schemes – This is what we do to help

We renovate workplace pension schemes

Many Defined Contribution schemes are derelict when First Actuarial arrives. We know what a good pension scheme looks like. We’ll overhaul yours and promote it to your people, so you can be proud of your workplace pension.

We’re the human face of pensions

Pensions are about people.  We’re set up to talk with your staff and restore their confidence in your pension scheme. We’ll provide the information they need and explain it to them so they can make informed decisions about their options.

We’re experts in auto-enrolment

We’re the only consultant in the Payroll Top 50.  We set up the Pension PlayPen to help compare pensions, and we’ll give affordable support to tens of thousands of small employers this year.

We’re good at governance

We deliver compliant and cost-effective pension solutions.  The Pensions Regulator and the FCA keep a watchful eye on your pension provision. We won’t just keep you compliant ‒ we’ll give you first-rate and cost-efficient governance.

We help improve DC pensions

No one works harder to improve Defined Contribution pension schemes.  We work with government, industry bodies and providers to make pension outcomes better for everyone.

And this is what we don’t do

  • We don’t charge commission

  • We have no in-house master trust to promote

  • We’re not an IFA ‒ we won’t sell services to your members

  • We don’t cross-sell or upsell at every opportunity

  • We have no middleware to peddle

  • We’re not dogmatic ‒ our approach is flexible and practical

4 steps to DC pension scheme heaven

If you’re running a workplace pension, the chances are it’s a Defined Contribution scheme. We can set you on the path to pension scheme heaven with these 4 steps:

Step 1

Choose the right workplace pension for you and your people

Step 2

Make sure everyone knows how the investment default works

Step 3

Put robust governance measures in place, and keep records

Step 4

Keep your people engaged with their accumulating pension pot

We’re actively looking to support more employers manage their workplace pensions

If you like what you’ve seen here, get in touch. There’s nothing we’d like more than to have a chat.

I would definitely recommend working with First Actuarial. Their consultants went over and above the call of duty to make sure the project progressed smoothly. In all areas – overall project and strategy scoping, Defined Contribution scheme and investment fund advice – the support has been exemplary.
