Defined Benefit

Meeting our clients’ financial goals the stable and steady way

Here at Cardano, we believe that the traditional way of investing for defined benefit pensions funds in the UK is no longer meeting people’s needs and should change. That’s why, as a company, we focus on helping defined benefit pension funds achieve a steady and stable growth in their funding ratio, with no nasty shocks. This enables them to become more resilient and better able to withstand financial crashes. 

  • Fiduciary Management

    We will help you achieve a steady growth in funding ratio, and once you are there stay there. We do this by managing your pension scheme in a planned and controlled way. We bring together experts from around the world and all walks of life, each specialists in their own right, to deliver this to you. Our clients have chosen the right level of delegation for them, and you can too.

  • Investment Advisory

    We will give you clear and impactful advice. Advice that makes a difference and helps you achieve a more certain outcome. Our client team have many years’ experience of working with trustees and helping them achieve results that count. We draw on our experience of managing pension funds to make sure that what we advise is both effective and practical.

  • Liability Driven Investment

    Interest rate and inflation remain the largest risks to many pension schemes. Therefore they are the most important things to manage correctly. We have taken the view that the best way to organise and manage this risk, while maintaining efficient and effective outcomes, is to own the LDI process by having this as part of our business structure and in-house capabilities.
