Pensions and employer covenant advisory team

Deloitte pensions advisory services team comprises of pensions, investment and covenant professionals, who provide clients with the complement of integrated risk management framework advisory services (i.e. funding, employer covenant and investment services) with the support of Deloitte's industry specialists from across the wider firm e.g. in Financial, Tax and Audit advisory.

Our multidisciplinary pensions advisory team consider the implications for the covenant assessment on funding and investment strategy, and take a holistic approach to identifying key risks as part of an integrated risk management approach - so covenant assessments are not simply a standalone exercise.

Our Approach

Our approach to employer covenant assessments brings additional insights and value to help trustees develop consistent covenant, funding and investment risk management strategies.

Our wider financial expertise also provides commercial solutions for funding, investment and security mitigation options, and Deloitte’s industry experts provide relevant insights and trends that need to be considered in the context of the employer covenant and their implications for the medium to long-term funding and investment strategy.

We take a proportionate approach by focusing on key risks and add value by considering how the covenant can shape consistent funding and investment strategies for better risk management.
