    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.

    Aspire to Retire: Helping employees avoid pension-value destruction

    Many employers run great pension schemes and spend a lot of money doing so - not just on the contributions they pay in but also on advice, communication and administration. And they’re happy to do so because they want their employees to have a decent income in retirement.

    However, the decisions that people have to take about their pension are many, varied and are often bewildering, which can lead to so called ‘pension-value destruction’. We see evidence of people making poor decisions such as:

    • accessing their pension pot earlier than they really need to
    • incurring unnecessary tax charges
    • making inefficient withdrawals, or
    • becoming victims of pension scams.

    Aspire to Retire has been designed to stop this happening. Join our webinar to find out how to help your employees avoid pension-value destruction.
