Pegasus - Your Pensions Executive

Our story

We observed that as defined benefit pension schemes became a legacy issue, in-house pension teams became widely under-resourced. Increased regulation and complexity put further pressure on these limited resources. In our experience, this has meant greater reliance on more expensive advisers and/or members of the trustee boards to deliver across a spectrum of activities from routine governance and secretarial tasks through to strategic projects. We felt that we could provide more cost effective solutions to this challenge.
