Financial institutions face twin challenges on pensions, offering products and services to clients and providing benefits for staff.  Whether your challenge is to understand the pensions issues arising under investment transactions for clients or to comply with increasingly complex regulations on pay and benefits for employees, we're here to help.

We have experience advising a range of multinational financial institutions.  Our work includes helping them understand the implications of entering into derivatives, lending and other banking arrangements with pension funds as counterparties, including advice on special types of pension scheme and the applicability of the EMIR directive.  We also familiar with all pensions aspects of corporate restructurings and demergers (whether acting for companies or for pension scheme trustees), and with helping clients manage the financial risks of running a company pension scheme.
