Client Experience

 

"The Risk Analyzer tool is very slick, well presented, and a great way to capture a lot of complex information... the tool will influence the way in which the trustees and I monitor scheme funding and investment information"

Colin Osborne
Pensions Manager, Northern Ireland Electricity

"The information on Risk Analyzer is really useful. In particular, it's great to see the movement over flexible time periods and the main drivers behind this"

Mark Bullivant
Finance Director and Trustee, NSK Pension Scheme

"The use of Aon's Risk Analyzer was a considerable addition to the valuation process. Aon used it to present the 31 December valuation results at the March meeting following and then finalise the valuation and recovery plan in early May - only four months after the valuation date. It allowed us to immediately see the impact of changing a range of assumptions on our deficit and recovery plan. It was very easy to understand and enabled us to explore different combinations of assumptions and recovery plans very efficiently. This enabled both the deficit and contributions levels to be agreed between the Company and Trustee at this March meeting and all parties were very pleased to be able to conclude the valuation so effectively."

George Taylor
Independent Trustee Chairman

"Aon used Risk Analyzer to present the initial results of our March 2015 valuation - the results were available on time for our Trustees' meeting, around 3 months after our valuation date, and everything ran very smoothly. Our Trustees found the use of technology to present the valuation results much more engaging than the paper presentations that Aon had prepared at previous valuations. The ability to move 'sliders' to see the impact of changing assumptions and different recovery plan structures was very interactive, saving time compared to Aon having to go away and come back with alternatives, and the ability to look at risk measures such as value-at-risk added useful context."

Jackie Broughton
Pensions Manager, Hoover Candy

"As a trustee of a small pension scheme I found Aon Hewitt’s Risk Analyzer to be an elegant, simple and yet a deeply informative application that effectively communicates the relevant information without overwhelming the senses. I believe the clarity that Risk Analyzer provided on our funding position, the associated risks inherent in our asset and liability management and some fascinating data on the scheme’s membership was of great aid to myself and the rest of the Trustees, and helped speed up our decision making process. I believe Risk Analyzer brings pension scheme communication, and analysis, in line with modern expectations of how information is disseminated in the twenty-first century – long overdue but no less welcome for that."

Paul Mandeville
Trustee, Lyreco (UK) Pension Fund
