Pensions Advisory

It is critical for stakeholders of defined benefit pension schemes to understand the businesses that support them.

Our truly independent, market leading team provides a tailored solution with integrated sector expertise, ensuring that our clients’ specific requirements are fully identified and addressed with the focus on developing a cost-efficient approach. We are at the forefront of providing a proactive, forward looking approach to managing employer covenant risk.​

We robustly support our client’s interests, while recognising the employer‑trustee relationship is on‑going and long term, benefiting from a pragmatic, consensual approach.​

How We Support You

Our Services

Employer Covenant Assessment

We help navigate the employer covenant process by providing clear, independent advice to assess the strength of the support provided to the DB scheme, now and in the future.

Affordability Evaluation and Recovery Plan Negotiation

Trustees of schemes in deficit typically ask us to evaluate the affordability of deficit contributions when assessing covenant.

However, in cases where the trustees already have a good understanding of covenant, we are sometimes asked to evaluate affordability in isolation.

Corporate Transaction Support

The Pensions Regulator requires relevant stakeholders to understand the full effect of any corporate transaction on the employer covenant.

We have significant experience in this area and can support clients throughout the transaction.

PPF Guarantee Analysis

We use our extensive and unrivalled knowledge of the PPF’s certification requirements and processes to help trustees and corporates navigate the changing requirements.

Restructuring Support

We have widespread knowledge and experience of the scheme funding regime and provide expert services in employer covenant, restructuring and insolvency situations.

This awareness and understanding means that we are often called upon to represent our clients to robustly support them in negotiations.

Skilled Person/Expert Witness

We are leading specialists on the scheme funding regime and provide expert services in employer covenant, restructuring and insolvency situations.

Covenant Monitoring & IRM

We work with trustees to develop/complete bespoke monitoring frameworks to simplify and improve the effectiveness of employer covenant monitoring, supporting an integrated risk management approach.

Teneo Securities LLC’s Business Continuity Planning

Teneo Securities LLC has developed a Business Continuity Plan (“BCP”) on how we will respond to events that significantly disrupt our business. Since the timing and impact of disasters and disruptions is unpredictable, we will have to be flexible in responding to actual events as they occur. With that in mind, we are providing you with this information on our BCP.

The Firm has developed and installed a BCP in the case of any business disruption that causes the Firm to have limited or no communications with its employees or customers. Our plan anticipates two types of business disruptions, internal disruptions which affect only our Firm's ability to do business (such as a fire in our building) and external disruptions that prevent the operation of securities markets or other firms (such as natural disasters or acts of war).

The Firm intends to stay in business during both internal and external disruptions due to the fact that the Firm employees can conduct Firm related business from alternate off-site physical locations and the Firm maintains an alternate location for the maintenance of its books and records. We anticipate that the Firm will recover from internal business disruptions within 24-48 hours. An outage due to an external business disruption may be longer and is beyond the control of the Firm. However, the Firm will endeavor to resume business as soon as it is possible for the Firm to establish business operations from alternate off-site physical locations.

The Firm’s BCP specifically addresses the following areas related to Firm operations:

  • Data back-up and recovery (hard copy and electronic);
  • All mission critical systems;
  • Procedures to test and determine the Firm's ability to do business (i.e., financial and operational assessments);
  • Alternate communications between customers and the Firm;
  • Alternate communications between the Firm and its employees;
  • Alternate physical location of employees;
  • Critical business constituent, bank, and counter-party impact;
  • Regulatory reporting; and
  • Communications with regulators.
