Pension scheme investment advice

BBS provides strategic investment advice to pension scheme trustees in relation to both defined benefit (DB) and defined contribution (DC) arrangements. Our approach is to deliver solutions that meet your specific needs whilst avoiding unnecessary complexity. Crucially, we always ensure that we explain the issues clearly so that you understand the reasons for our recommendations.

When providing recommendations, we make extensive use of graphics to illustrate concepts and market trends, and give clear advice on the most suitable course of action to be taken.
