Join Award Winning Stoneport’s January Employer Webinar
Is your DB scheme a problem or an overlooked opportunity?
Stoneport’s aim is to address the big issues small schemes face in seeking to run off their liabilities through time alone: high running costs, the risks to members’ pensions promises, and delivering benefits efficiently and effectively.
Stoneport does this by bringing smaller DB schemes together to run as if they were one large DB scheme, whilst respecting their identities – in terms of benefit design, funding positions, and flexibilities around investment and contribution choices.
For employers this takes out much of the time, cost and hassle experienced today from running a DB scheme.
For trustees and members, it provides the security they are looking for that their retirements will be provided for.
If you have responsibilities for a scheme that is closed to accruals (or considering closing), with fewer than 1,000 members and a sufficiently strong covenant then please join us to hear how Stoneport can help you.
