Take our work with a large healthcare services provider. We could see that impending regulatory changes would affect the way it was able to access the NHS pension scheme for its workforce. We knew that this was particularly important for our client’s competitive position and its ability to attract and retain talent.

By anticipating the issues, we were able to warn the client about the changes on the horizon and help the Board understand in advance the risks and opportunities they posed.

Our team was able to provide the Board with strategic guidance on its options and the most appropriate approach to take. We guided the management team through the new regulations, spotting and avoiding potential risks, while ensuring the right level of NHS pension scheme access was secured.

As an employer with a range of complex public sector and private sector pension arrangements, the client welcomed our support in identifying the options and implementing the new arrangements.
