DB funding and
investment in challenging times

Our viewpoint

How schemes can weather the storm.

Covid-19 has caused unprecedented changes in the economy and many pension schemes have been hit by changes in financial markets increasing their deficit or a challenged sponsor, or, worst of all, both.   

But now we’re through the immediate shock, we need to move forward. Trustees and sponsors still have to make decisions on how to fund their scheme and manage their investments to make sure members' benefits are protected and continue to be paid. There is also the challenge of considering the impact of The Pensions Regulator’s funding consultation and recent statements.   

How can you make sense of all this for your scheme? Our webinar shines a spotlight on:

  • How we have seen trustees and sponsors approach covenant assessments, affordability discussions and deficit deferral requests – the next round of requests may be imminent.
  • How trustees and sponsors have been tackling funding and investment decisions.
  • How funding and investment decision-making might evolve and what opportunities might arise.

One thing seems certain - the post Covid-19 landscape makes integrated risk management and contingency planning, pulling together covenant, funding and investment assessments more important than ever.
