10 second summary

  • We helped a trustee board visualise its endgame strategy through an interactive session we like to call ‘Endopoly’.
  • This created alignment between stakeholders and provided a clear focus for the board, allowing for better-informed decisions.

What was the problem?

  • The trustee board of a multinational technology company’s pension scheme needed help visualising its endgame strategy.

What was our solution?

    • We ran a game simulation, ‘Endopoly’, which factored in multiple endgame variables, including:
      • Whether to aim for buy-out or self-sufficiency.
      • The risk tolerance of the trustee board.
      • How long to take to reach endgame.
      • Probability of paying all benefits over the life of the scheme.

If a market shock would require additional company contributions.

What was the outcome?

  • With new-found clarity, the trustees agreed the most important criteria and aligned their targets for the scheme – with the probability of paying all benefits firmly at the top of the list.

What does this mean for you?

  • We can assist you with visualising an endgame strategy, which creates alignment between stakeholders and helps guide decision-making.
