Innovative plan design


Mercer will help you design pension schemes that fit your organisation’s strategy, culture, budget and risk tolerance. We can provide comparisons with industry norms and leading competitors. When circumstances change, we will work with you to redesign pension benefits to suit the changed environment.


We can help you to rationalise multiple pension schemes and benefit structures. Our experience covers the full range of pension scheme design, including defined benefit, defined contribution, career average, hybrid and flexible benefit schemes.
