Challenges of DB (Defined Benefit) schemes

If you have a DB scheme, you might find that it’s causing you some business issues.  Some of the most common issues that we help businesses to overcome include:

  • Operational flexibility

Your business might be limited in terms of: cashflow requirements, mergers & acquisitions; shareholder dividends and refinancing.

  • Costs

Difficult economic conditions and regulatory input may mean there is pressure on employers to accelerate scheme funding. Also, the levies you have to pay to the Pension Protection Fund may have increased.

  • Financial flexibility

Finance Directors may have to deal with: balance sheet volatility; higher risk profiles and restrictions on corporate restructuring.
