Your challenge

The low interest rate, increasing longevity and declining investment returns have impacted the pension market for the last decade. Legislative changes and increasing governance have also played a role in the changing pension landscape. Pension premiums have increased significantly, pension commitments have been lowered and the risks have shifted more and more towards the employees.
