We use proprietary analytics to evaluate client retirement plan designs to ensure they continue to support your business goals and objectives and also remain feasible from a financial perspective. While legacy provider relationships and processes offer stability to clients, we also assess current administrative and operational practices to mitigate compliance risks and optimize efficiencies.
The focus of our consulting is to measure the effectiveness of the plan design in generating strong participant outcomes for your dollars spent. We use a multi-disciplined approach to evaluate each retirement program: conduct extensive stakeholder interviews, evaluate the current design, participant usage, and quantify participant outcomes and costs of the current offering. Based on client goals, we identify optimal design structures within budgeted parameters.
We conduct operational assessments that help uncover compliance gaps and risks in current administrative processes that are not best practices. We lead clients in resolving or mitigating the risk of operational failures, identify opportunities to increase efficiencies and reduce internal processing burdens by outsourcing more duties to existing service providers.
PPFM represents our best practice approach to managing the funded status of our client’s pension plan. Our proprietary process allows us to better evaluate: asset allocation impacts to funded status and risk budget; plan liability changes and recommended portfolio shifts due to changes in the market, interest rate, plan demographics, legislative or regulatory changes; alternative funding options to cash; plan design and liability reduction strategies.
Through PPFM, we offer our clients the reporting, tools, and the governance framework to make fact based decisions regarding the fundamental components of successful pension management.
