Trustees of the Dolce Ltd Retirement Benefits Scheme have selected First Actuarial to provide actuarial and administration services from June 2020.
A key factor in the Trustees’ decision was First Actuarial’s expertise in Government Actuary’s Department (GAD) broadly comparable pension schemes for transferring ex public sector employees from outsourced council contracts.
Their research was led by Janet Heath, Independent Pensions Consultant and Secretary to the Trustees. “We are delighted to be working with First Actuarial,” says Janet. “Their friendly and pragmatic approach combined with their experience of GAD-certified schemes made them stand out from the competition.”

Sam Mullock, a partner at First Actuarial, says: “We are delighted to be working with the Dolce Ltd Retirement Benefits Scheme. We believe that our smart pension solutions will help them run the Scheme efficiently and effectively.”
