Corporate Pension Scheme Risk

Wren Sterling delivers tailored de-risking exercises for UK Defined Benefit schemes, supporting our clients, and giving their scheme members access to financial advice.

This is our ‘Retirement Advice Partnership’, because that’s how we view these projects – as a partnership – working together with you to support your scheme and its members.

AstraZeneca has worked with Wren Sterling for many years, in a number of different areas, from supporting employees affected by a Corporate Pension exercise to Pensioners considering taking up the offer of a Pension Increase Exchange. Our employees and pension scheme members value the independent advice and support they receive from Wren Sterling, whilst we value their responsiveness, can do approach and collaborative working practices.

Pensions Risk Management Solutions: How We Can help

Wren Sterling has worked with many FTSE 100 companies managing ongoing support exercises for their members approaching retirement. We ensure their scheme members understand their retirement options and help them plan a path that can achieve their financial goals.

Financial education

During these exercises, it’s important to recognise that your scheme members will feel uncertain about their future. While providing access to a qualified financial adviser will give them a recommendation built on their personal circumstances, financial education can help further:

  • Strengthen employee’s confidence when making decisions about their pension funds
  • Provide greater understanding and appreciation of their employee benefits
  • Encourage employee engagement

How we measure success

Member feedback is really important to us, so after we complete an exercise we will look to run a survey on your members’ experience with us. This helps us to improve our services and gives your members the chance to identify any other financial planning requirements that they have.
