Redington and PwC join forces to address pensions industry challenges

RELATED TOPICS​

PwC and Redington, two of the UK’s leading innovators in pension solutions, have formed a unique strategic alliance to help trustees and sponsors better eliminate deficits, improve funding levels, and manage pensions risk. 

As concerns over conflicts of interest in the investment consultancy process continue to intensify, Redington and PwC believe an end-to-end independent advisory proposition is imperative to tackling the challenges faced across the pensions industry. The combined capability of PwC and Redington will provide any organisation dealing with pensions’ challenges with independent advice, supporting clients all the way from strategy to execution. 

The alliance seeks to harness Redington’s highly-regarded investment advisory business, alongside PwC’s leading multi-disciplinary pensions practice. Redington, with its expertise in investment consulting, will seek to add value to the asset side of the equation – by helping to drive returns from assets, improve funding levels and reduce downside risk. PwC will apply its expertise in reducing and financing deficits, modernising pension plan design and member options, as well as asset liability strategy. 

Robert Gardner, co-CEO at Redington, says: “Redington and PwC recognise that the challenges facing pension schemes and savers are volatile, uncertain and complex. Together, we are committed to help clients repair their deficits, and protect their funding levels. We believe an integrated solution, leveraging the breadth, depth and skills of both firms, is the best way to tackle the needs of our clients.” 

Raj Mody, head of UK pensions consulting at PwC, says: “By applying the firms’ knowledge, people and analytics in an integrated way, this alliance will help sponsors and trustees better understand and implement the necessary changes that will solve the challenges they face. Importantly, clients can be confident about the independence of advice particularly around asset strategy. The alliance of two leading innovators is hugely exciting.”
