Private pensions which supplement the basic state pension are the bedrock of a secure and comfortable retirement. However, the pace of regulatory change and the need for sustainability as well as cost control and risk mitigation can pose real challenges for trustees and employers responsible for managing pension schemes.

Legislative and regulatory developments including IORP II, the development of master trust offerings, ongoing data reporting requirements are increasing the complexity and costs of running pension schemes.

KPMG helps organisations face these challenges. Aligning commercial objectives with trustee and member needs we work with government, private and public sector employers as well as charities – to help clients find better ways of solving their unique pension challenges. We are actively involved in helping finance directors to measure the effect pensions have on their reporting. We ensure that employers can enjoy the peace of mind which comes with the knowledge that they are getting the best value for their pension spend. We help design and implement change, supporting employers and employees towards sustainable pensions.
