LIVE WEBCAST: 20 April – 16 June 2021
We know that your DB scheme isn’t as big as some others are, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have big expectations of the service you, your members and your sponsor receive - and those big expectations shouldn’t have to mean a big price tag!
At Mercer, we understand that pensions should be about people, not about the size of the scheme they’re in. That’s why, in 2021, we’re hosting a series of webinars specifically for schemes with Assets Under Management of less than £250m who expect more from their provider.
So, if you’re interested in finding out how we’re able to:

Have you decided on your Defined Benefit scheme’s endgame?
If you have, have you planned how you will monitor your progress and ensure you remain on track?
If you haven’t, would you like to better understand your options and which might suit all your scheme’s stakeholders?
In the first of our series of webinars addressing specific issues faced by Defined Benefit schemes with less than £250m of Assets Under Management, we’ll be discussing endgame planning and execution.

Rising scheme costs, whether that be in the form of contributions, PPF Levies or provider fees, is a concern for schemes of all sizes. Many schemes are looking to reduce costs but at the very least, they are looking for greater cost certainty.
This is becoming a balancing act, especially for smaller schemes. Increasingly they are being expected – not asked - to accept a service that is simply compliant, when what they need more than ever is a proactive service that adds value, if they want to achieve cost certainty.

Despite most DB schemes facing similar challenges, it may appear easier for some to access the right support, information and advice. Why? Because traditionally it is the larger schemes that the industry focuses on. Simply put, the larger the scheme the more likely a bespoke solution will be found to address their issue.
The good news for schemes with AUM of £250m or less is that those bespoke arrangements are increasingly being repurposed and repositioned to help you.
