Actuarial Consulting – Pensions
UK companies presently have over £2 trillion invested in pension schemes, more than the rest of Europe put together. That’s a breathtaking sum, but the question remains whether individual companies have set aside enough to meet their pensions’ obligations 20, 30 or even 40 years down the line. People are living longer than ever before and the recent economic turmoil has demonstrated that those who manage pension schemes cannot always rely on good investment returns to help meet the costs of the benefits promised.
A market leader in actuarial consulting, Aon has been advising companies and trustees on their pension schemes for over sixty years. Our actuarial consultants specialise in advising our clients on those schemes to help them manage the associated financial and operational risks, now and in the future.
