Pensions Risk Management

Willis Towers Watson’s team of de-risking specialists works with pension plan sponsors and trustees who are looking to manage their defined benefit pension liabilities. We provide market-leading advice and implementation services related to all aspects of risk management for schemes of all sizes.

Reducing exposure to the risks associated with pension plans is something many plan sponsors and trustees would like to achieve. But how do you identify the best way for your plan to do this? And how do you make it happen?

From understanding your risks to establishing a de-risking roadmap to the execution of your de-risking plan, including hedging longevity risk, investment solutions, member options and data solutions – our services begin with a clear understanding of our client. 

We have four areas to our business:

  1. Pensions Scheme Transactions
  2. Liability Management
  3. Pensions Data Solutions
  4. Pensions Project Management

Our team works with specialists from across our business, leveraging the skills from our investment, communication, administration and insurance consultants to give us both breadth and depth of expertise. We provide a comprehensive plan to take clients from their current state to their ultimate goal, and manage and execute all the necessary steps along the way. 

Using our knowledge, experience and resources, we help clients to understand their needs, identify relevant solutions, navigate the risks and implement successful outcomes. Our aim is to give clarity to our clients allowing them to make the right decisions and take the right actions at the right time.

 

We appointed Willis Towers Watson to lead us through the buy-in opportunity, things moved very quickly supported by Willis Towers Watson’s Project Management team. The Trustee Board was particularly impressed by the whole Willis Towers Watson team, they guided us through every step which was in the interest of our members and the Corporation.”
