​Ian has added more value than we thought he would at the start… which shows it pays to go with someone who is doing the job of a professional trustee as their bread and butter.

De-risking on the agenda for 91% of pension schemes - survey results

Our joint PSIT and Gowling WLG survey looked at where defined benefit (DB) pension schemes of all shapes and sizes are at on their de-risking journeys. The results challenged some preconceptions on scheme sponsor funding and what pension de-risking actually looks like.

The three key themes emerging from the survey are:

  • engagement between pension trustees and scheme sponsors to develop a strategy is vital for successful de-risking
  • de-risking is no longer just about insurance - pension liability management exercises and investment strategies are central to a new joined up approach to de-risking
  • funding from the pension scheme sponsor is often not the main impediment to de-risking

Download the full pension de-risking survey results to find out how the best options for reducing pension schemes are managing risk and what they plan to do in the future.
