An innovative approach

We are constantly thinking of ways in which we can improve the service we provide to clients. We saw an opportunity to use technology to enhance the way we deliver valuation advice and developed Illuminate.

We recognise that our clients aren't looking for a pre-packaged product to access in their own time. Instead, Illuminate allows our consultants to provide advice which is clear, relevant and tailored in a modern, flexible way for each client. We believe this is much more valuable than an ‘off-the-shelf’ solution.

Where is your scheme heading?

Tailored precisely to your scheme, Illuminate helps you to see things more clearly; using real time data to give you an instant overview of your scheme and the key risks.

Using Illuminate, we can help trustees and sponsors make informed decisions on their pension scheme strategy. Our experts can help you analyse all of the risks facing your scheme, including longevity and employer covenant and implement effective funding and investment strategies. Illuminate can then be used to track your progress over time and refine your strategy, as necessary. View our short video to find out more about Illuminate and how it can help you.
