PCS experts are independent industry leaders with deep and broad business and technical experience and expertise in addressing the requirements, challenges and opportunities of modern retirement and employee benefit plans.
Addressing the Challenges and Opportunities
Achieving and sustaining optimum performance of retirement and employee benefit plans requires developing and executing coherent strategies that are in sync with current and long term business performance objectives, often in complex and changing operating environments, including investment markets, legacy issues, cost structures, and legislation such as ERISA in the United States.
Such strategies require a thorough understanding of the risks and opportunities inherent within the business and its operating environment, taking into account the influences of funding mechanisms, legal and regulatory requirements, business performance objectives, and retirement and employee benefit plan responsibilities.
Our pension consultants provide services through five major practice segments – Strategic Financial Assessment and Risk Analysis, Independent Compliance, Performance and Actuarial Audits, Restructuring, Arbitration and Litigation Support, and Strategic Communications.
