Atkin trustees, actuaries, consultants & administrators

Our firm

Atkin & Co advise and assist in the running of small and medium sized pension schemes. Our clients face the same issues as larger pension schemes but do not have same level of resources to address these issues. We specialise in providing the quality and depth of services commonly only available to larger schemes. We apply a collaborative, innovative and practical approach that relies upon a much closer working relationship with the client.

Our administrative, actuarial, investment, trustee and payroll teams work transparently and closely together so that we all understand the challenges faced by our clients. We have a large variety of clients of different sizes, industries and structures each with their own unique challenges so, when you are working at Atkin & Co, no day is ever the same. One day you might be working on a PPF transition case, the next providing trustees with covenant advice, the next, working with a participating body to agree funding assumptions and a recovery plan with the relevant Local Government Pension Scheme.

Atkin & Co has experienced a rate of growth over recent years that few other consultancies can match. To continue this growth we believe in members of our team taking on responsibility early, be it with client work or internal development projects. As both the company and client teams have a flat management structure everyone is able to contribute ideas and have a real impact on the overall business/client strategy.

Our clients will typically have little pension expertise of their own, therefore they tend to seek a more interactive and personal relationship with us. We explain pension issues as simply as we can and ensure that the client fully understands our advice so they feel confident in the decisions they make. We pride ourselves in the strong relationships we have with them and we encourage client interaction at all levels throughout the team.

We encourage and promote creativity and sharing of ideas and are enthusiastic about what we do and this is reflected in the results that we achieve. Our ‘can-do’ attitude means that we are used to developing these ideas into the cornerstone of a bespoke solution that is both practical and effective. As the pensions industry continues to change, so do we.

Most of all we believe that work should be both enjoyable and rewarding.

With our previous advisors we very rarely went to them for consultation advice, as we had little faith in them. We tended to use solicitors, and to that extent the cost to the Company has been significantly reduced, and we are very happy with Atkin & Co’s approach and guidance here. We are all more than happy with our move to Atkin & Co.
