Independent retirement fund consulting



view our servicesContact Us
Pension Fund Partners is your independent retirement fund consulting and project management services provider.

Rather than advising individuals on retirement provision, we focus exclusively on providing corporate retirement fund consulting services.

That frees us from distractions and helps us to deliver independent, impartial advice that’s in the best interests of your company’s retirement fund and your existing and future retirees.

Managing your company’s retirement fund is a significant responsibility. In addition to providing growth opportunities for your people now, you want to be sure that they’re provided for in their retirement.

Saving you time and money

As an employer, the more involved you are in project managing this aspect of your company’s financial planning, the greater your administrative burden will be. That means less time to focus on your core responsibility: growing your business and adding value.
