Being a 21st Century Trustee is increasingly complex. It’s a huge responsibility, particularly given that trustees often have other responsibilities. However, many of the trustees we speak to do it because it’s a passion. A passion for doing the right thing and a passion for helping others. We share this passion. And we want to share the burden many trustees feel. That’s why when we give advice we focus on your problems, not our solutions. 

For almost 100 years Hymans Robertson have remained steadfastly independent in every possible way, from our ownership through to our advice. This allows us to put our clients at the heart of our business and provide the advice and solutions that truly meet their needs. And importantly, we don’t just give advice, but we work together to implement and monitor that advice. Always keeping an eye on your ambitions, helping your members achieve a better future.

Helping trustees to fulfil their role is a key priority for us. We host regular training courses and events to help trustees understand the challenges they face and navigate the increasingly complex environment to ensure they get the best outcomes for their members.

River and Mercantile Solutions, an investment consultant and fiduciary manager for pensions schemes and other institutional investors, was established over 15 years ago with an explicit focus on developing client-led solutions to help trustees achieve their funding and investment objectives. River and Mercantile Solutions is part of the River and Mercantile Group, a specialist investment firm focussed on delivering client led advice and investment solutions.

The combined expertise, resources and breadth of services across the Group makes us well placed to seize opportunities to create new services and improve existing offerings all with the aim of adding value for our clients. Today, we provide a full range of investment consulting services, via a flexible engagement model. This spans traditional investment consulting to full fiduciary management with a broad spectrum of options in between. Our integrated and flexible approach has given our clients access to bespoke investment solutions that are tailored to their needs at a price they can afford, irrespective of their size.

We have a long history of proactive innovation to take advantage of rapidly changing market conditions and to find solutions that meet the evolving needs of our clients. We became the first in the UK market to offer full fiduciary management to both Defined Benefit and Defined Contribution pension clients and insurance clients. Our clients were early adopters of liability hedging using our specialist in house team to manage pension schemes’ liability and asset risks more explicitly through innovative derivative hedging strategies.

We have also been proactive in partnering with investment managers to design and seed pooled investment funds that can be accessed by all of our clients, where we felt an investment opportunity existed but the vehicle to access it did not.
