Distressed Pensions Advisory

It is often the case that a defined benefit pension scheme is a significant or even the largest creditor when we are called in to look at a business experiencing financial distress. Considered in conjunction with the Pensions Regulator’s moral hazard powers, this means that having a strong grasp of the issues and obligations pertaining to the scheme, as well as a range of appropriate solutions, is essential for all stakeholders during a restructuring process.

We have considerable experience providing advice and support to Lenders, Employers and Trustees in a broad range of situations. Our work typically incorporates some or all of the workstreams below:

  • Developing estimated outcome analysis to establish potential returns to different creditors in the event of insolvency
  • Assessing affordability of the scheme, funding levels and eligibility for PPF entry
  • Stakeholder analysis
  • Preparation for and support during meetings with tPR / PPF
  • Innovative approaches to address the Scheme’s deficit
