Design and benchmarking of Defined Contribution schemes

We’ll design a Defined Contribution scheme to meet your needs, by listening to what you want to achieve

The design of any pension scheme is crucial to its success.

Organisations vary hugely in their reasons for offering pension schemes. For some, it’s just about complying with legislation. Others are keen to match the benefits their competitors are offering. And many simply want to provide a high quality package of benefits to their employees.

Our approach to design is bespoke to you and your employees – we will work with you to design a Defined Contribution scheme that meets your needs and is appropriate for your employees.

How can First Actuarial help you get the right Defined Contribution scheme for your needs and budget?

To design the best Defined Contribution scheme, we’ll help you understand the costs and advantages of different benefit structures, and whether it makes sense to tailor the benefits you offer to different groups of people.

But there’s more to designing a Defined Contribution scheme than benefit structures.

First Actuarial case studies

Hachette UK

Hachette UK, one of the UK’s largest publishing groups, turned to First Actuarial to help improve staff engagement with pensions.

“One of the things I like about First Actuarial is that they’re very responsive. You never have to chase them for anything. They’re pragmatic and cost-effective.”



The RSPB was determined to minimise the impact of its new defined contribution scheme on employees, and appointed First Actuarial to support the transition and select a provider with strong ethical values.

“I would definitely recommend working with First Actuarial. Their consultants went over and above the call of duty to make sure the project progressed smoothly.”


Bolton Cares

Taking responsibility for care services previously provided by a local authority, Bolton Cares turned to First Actuarial for help in setting up a competitive and affordable DC pension scheme for its staff.

“They’ve been really helpful and professional throughout the project, and we’ll use them again if we need specialist advice.”
