We can help you balance your pension plan funding, costs and risk to deliver and implement an effective risk management strategy for your business. Talk to us today.
To help companies better react to changing market dynamics and de-risk, we provide a holistic approach to pension risk management that aligns your strategy with your plan´s overall funding status.
Our pension risk consultants have proficiency in developing sophisticated strategies to help you minimise your risk. We can help you with setting glide paths and de-risk levels, integrating risk management with funding improvement, liability-driven investments, asset-liability modelling, diversified growth portfolio construction, and pension risk transfer strategy and execution.
Companies and trustees are changing defined benefit funding and risk strategies due to increasing regulatory changes, impact on corporate balance sheets and endgame planning.
We’ll help you understand which options suit your circumstances and help you manage your scheme throughout its journey, taking account of your individual constraints along the way. For those considering buying in/out pension liabilities, we believe that engaging the insurer market early will help bring clarity to the potential financial outcomes and sensitivities. For non-pensioners, we can appraise the viability of liability management exercises to manage non-pensioner liabilities.
We’re here to help. Complete the “Connect with us” form today and we will be in touch with you to discuss your concerns and how we can help you implement a risk-effective strategy for your plan.

Dynamic de-risking strategies are designed to help clients with underfunded plans to optimise investment strategy by remaining in risk assets while the plan is underfunded and then gradually and rigorously scaling down risk as plan funding improves.
Mercer’s Dynamic De-risking Solution (MDDS) is an innovative pension risk management solution that capitalises on our risk management and operational expertise. It allows plan sponsors with limited time and resources to focus on strategic elements that have the greatest financial impact.
A dynamic de-risking strategy provides a framework to define your target endgame, along with a roadmap to get there. The roadmap helps enable plan sponsors to react to market conditions and continue on the path to their desired outcome.
MDDS combines our depth of experience in the retirement actuarial and investment consulting arenas with our investment management operational platform.
The goal is to provide a holistic de-risking roadmap that can be executed quickly and efficiently.
