David Porter discusses the evolution of an investment administration eco-system, to deliver better and more efficient holistic solutions to sponsors and in turn improve member outcomes.
There’s a lot of moving parts in delivering an effective workplace pension scheme. Sponsors, pension trustees and their consultants must consider every aspect – from scheme design and investment strategy to investment and member administration, governance, banking, data reporting and a host of other support services.
It would be fantastic if all these services could be delivered in one place by one supplier – but for real, practical reasons, schemes need to rely on a range of different suppliers to meet their needs.
It would also help if the different suppliers were all used to working collectively, to provide a best-in-breed solution, where straight through processing and integrated systems worked seamlessly together.
The perfect pension administration eco-system is gradually emerging, like the butterfly from its chrysalis, and at Mobius Life we’re helping to nurture this process. Our wide range of client relationships and expertise in collaborative working across the spectrum of service suppliers to pension schemes, means we’re perfectly placed to enable the eco-system to thrive.
We already work closely with all the key providers involved in delivering workplace pension solutions. These include consultants, investment managers, member administration specialists, data and reporting analysts and governance experts. As well as bankers, technology and website suppliers, scheme accountants and member communication professionals.
And because we’re working collaboratively with these suppliers all the time, we know how they operate and we have developed our capabilities to integrate with theirs, making life easier for our clients.
So, the perfect pension administration eco-system may not be fully formed yet – but at Mobius we’re working to help the industry evolve, to deliver better and more efficient holistic solutions to sponsors and in turn improve member outcomes.
And of course, all of this helps to meet the regulators’ requirement that schemes deliver measurable value for money.
If you would like to discuss how the pension administration eco-system might develop and grow, please let me know. I’d be delighted to hear from you.
