Quantum Advisory assists employers with their pension and employee benefit arrangements. We design, maintain and review pension schemes for employers to ensure they are operating effectively. We provide advice on standalone pension schemes as well as multi-employer schemes such as SHPS, LGPS and Group Personal Defined Contribution Pension arrangements.

Our experts have helped many employers reduce the cost of, or completely exit, their LGPS or other pension arrangements and establish alternative benefit packages for employees. Any benefit changes need to be communicated to employees clearly so they are understood. We assist employers by drafting employee consultation documents, providing statements with employee specific pension projections illustrating how the changes impact them, delivering group employee presentations backed up with one-to-one employee sessions.

We also help employers set up salary exchange arrangements where significant N.I. savings can be enjoyed by both employers and their employees.

We take pride in having a close relationship with our clients and encourage them to use as little or as much of our expertise as they feel is needed.
