Employer risk
Managing employer risk is key in the service we provide to our LGPS clients. Our innovative ‘covenant’ approach helps protect the funds, taxpayers and other fund employers.

We work with all relevant government departments and advisors to reduce employer risk. For example, we've worked with the Department for Education in respect of college mergers where we investigated and reported on the financial viability of several Further Education college mergers. Moreover, we are currently working with the Government Actuary’s Department (GAD) in relation to academy pension liabilities.
