A transaction is much more likely to run smoothly if there are plans in place to protect the pension scheme. Getting advice early is key to avoiding scrutiny from the regulator further down the line.
FRP’s advisers have helped many clients put procedures in place to safeguard pension schemes. Drawing on extensive corporate finance and restructuring experience, we find practical solutions to any potential pension issues that can trip up a transaction.
Our pragmatism sets us apart. At every stage of the process we assess risks, ask the right questions and pre-empt challenges. Being proactive enables us to protect a pension scheme in a way that makes commercial sense and still allows a transaction to complete. We’re also quick to react and can advise on clearance applications to the regulator.
Experience tells us we’re most valuable when we take a hands-on approach. We can oversee the entire process, from initial training on areas to watch out for to consulting on structures of deals. By working closely with you and other parties, we’ll handle difficult negotiations to keep transactions moving forward.
A number of clients have achieved even stronger outcomes than they initially imagined.”Gerald Smith Pensions Advisory
