Within: Pensions

With 'a growing presence in the pensions space', PwC LLP 'is not only increasing in depth but is demonstrating innovative ways of assisting clients' across pensions indexation, bulk annuity transactions, VAT issues and fiduciary management agreements. Oliver Reece heads up the group, which was recently bolstered by the recruitment of Marcus Fink from Ashurst. In a recent highlight, Fraser Sparks advised Stena on the merger of its five UK DB schemes into a single pension scheme; he also assisted the Zoological Society of London with the closure of its DB pension scheme to future accrual. David Farmer is also recommended; he advised De La Rue on an index change.
