At Silverman Sherliker we recognise the importance of corporate pension planning, and our specialist unit is dedicated to providing expert advice to address every circumstance.
The growth in complexity of occupational pension provisions shows little sign of tailing off. We are able to provide Employers and Trustees of work place pension arrangements with specialist advice ensuring they stay on the right side of sometimes impenetrable legislation.
We can help with the day to day management of pension schemes by reviewing all the relevant documentation, including the scheme Trust Deed and Rules, insurance policies, agreements, notices, booklets and announcements
We can provide timely and understandable advice, and if disputes do arise we help to provide a fair and friendly settlement for everyone. On those occasions when matters end up in court or a tribunal, we will be on side to guide you through the process.
We can also provide pension advice and assistance when companies are being bought and sold and we will work closely with colleagues in the Corporate and Employment teams to form an integrated approach to commercial deals.
As defined benefit schemes grapple with large deficits in their funding arrangements, it becomes more difficult in the unstable financial markets to get a grip on their costs. We can guide Employers and Scheme Trustees through the legislative maze and we will work closely with other scheme advisers such as actuaries, administrators and investment experts to get the scheme back on track.
Looking to the future, we are also happy to provide advice on alternatives to defined benefit schemes such as defined contribution schemes, Group Personal Pensions and the new Personal Accounts regime.
