KPMG’s pensions advisory team helps companies manage their pension costs and risks.  The IBC sector is people-intensive and pensions are therefore important to employees and managing the often significant defined benefit liabilities is critical.  KPMG’s team includes actuaries, investment professionals and covenant advisors, enabling us to develop holistic pension strategies to meet companies’ objectives.  We help companies manage changes to their pension plans (defined benefit and defined contribution), to manage their pension plan assets effectively, and to efficiently finance pension deficits – for example using PFI portfolios to support the pension scheme.  IBC companies have legacy defined benefit liabilities that we are helping to “manage down” through a combination of reducing / reshaping liabilities and ultimately using insurance and hedging to mitigate and remove residual risks to the business.
