We are thrilled to announce that, for the fifth consecutive year, CMS will be the CPC’s exclusive legal partner
CMS is a top 10 global law firm whose pensions team has been ranked top in the Legal directories for 12 consecutive years and was awarded Pensions Law firm of the Year in 2020. CMS has been a supporter of the CPC for the previous four years and provides members with a pensions legal update – feedback from members tell us that charities value staying abreast of the latest legal pension developments and we welcome the opportunity to work with CMS through 2021.
CMS work with a significant number of charities, meaning they truly understand the legal requirements specific to the third sector. In particular, CMS have vast experience advising charities on pensions matters through their UK pensions practice – comprising of 68 lawyers, including 18 partners – making it one of the biggest in the UK.
We truly believe this will be an engaging relationship that our Charities Pensions Club members will benefit significantly from.
We are excited to announce that Isio will also be returning as Exclusive Actuarial Partner for 2021.
Isio is a new name, but an established team – you may remember Jen & Gemma from KPMG’s pensions practice who sponsored us previously. In March 2020, all 500 KPMG Pensions staff, 20 partners and over 700 existing clients transferred to a new business - becoming Isio, one of the UK’s largest independent pensions advice and wealth management specialists. Isio aims to deliver clearer, simpler pensions and investment advice in a more personal way, backed by technical expertise and underpinned by proprietary technology.
Isio combines actuarial expertise, third party administration, investment consulting and defined contribution specialism to deliver better outcomes for pension scheme sponsors, trustees and members. Isio’s clients include many charities and not-for-profits, of which Gemma and Jen advise several. They understand the issues CPC members face, and can help you continue to manage the many challenges that Covid has brought by sharing their experiences. They are delighted to continue their support of the CPC.
We look forward to working with Isio again and are confident that our members will benefit greatly!
