Fiduciary manager selection

Do you have the right fiduciary manager in place?

The investment governance requirements of the Pensions Act apply to all fund managers, including fiduciary managers. Letting one organisation decide on your entire investment portfolio means placing a lot of trust in them.

It’s important to ensure that the right provider is selected and that they remain suitable over time. This calls for regular research and continuous monitoring.

We are well placed to carry out specialist assessment of fiduciary strategy, including credit, multi-strategy, illiquid markets and liability-driven investment.

We make sure that fiduciary offerings start off and remain fit for purpose so you get the best possible results at a reasonable price.

First Actuarial case studies

The Kennel Club

Concerned about the risk of an Employer contribution increase as a result of high liabilities, Trustees of the Kennel Club Pension Fund turned to First Actuarial.

“They’re extremely professional and helpful. Their input always seems sound, logical and well presented. First Actuarial handled the transition well, they provide us with helpful guidance, and have delivered what they promised when they pitched for the work.”


Southern Co-op

The Trustees of the Southern Co-op pension scheme had a fiduciary, or delegated, arrangement in place, giving the manager discretion over how to invest the Scheme’s assets to meet the Trustees’ objectives.

"When we met the team on a video conferencing call, we built up a rapport quickly. We were comfortable with them and their fees were reasonable.”



As a result of an unusual clause in their trust deeds, Trustees of the pension scheme sponsored by the Society of British Aerospace Companies (SBAC) funded their liabilities on a buy-out basis.

“First Actuarial are very proactive. They respond quickly and get things done. They have proved to be competent and conscientious, and have a very professional and personable approach to business relations.”
