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.”
