Pension and benefits services provider, Buck, has launched into the UK to offer consulting, administration, and technology solutions to businesses and pension scheme trustees.

Buck has 100 years of expertise in pensions and employee benefits and will provide a range of actuarial and investment consulting services to trustees and company sponsors of UK pension schemes, as well as outsourced/co-sourced pensions administration. This covers both defined benefit and defined contribution provision.

The firm also aims to improve the employee experience through benefits programmes which increase staff engagement and motivation.

David Piltz, UK managing director, said: “The UK launch of the new Buck aims to use the extensive experience of our team with the advantages that technology-driven solutions bring to both pension schemes and employee benefits within a business. Financial and personal wellbeing are key issues that both trustees and employers need to prioritise in the coming years.

"Whether it’s providing an effective pension fund risk management strategy, or offering opportunities for individuals to better understand their personal finances, we aim to exceed our clients’ expectations by being nimble and easy to do business with, and combining our vast expertise with the very latest technology and decisioning tools.”

Jack Freker, chief executive officer, commented: “At Buck, we are dedicated to working with organisations to meet the changing expectations of their people by drawing upon on the breadth of expertise and talent within our team whilst looking to the future through our technology innovation. Our UK business has always been fundamental to the strength and growth of our organisation and I’m confident that this new chapter in our history will build upon this as we continue to evolve and expand.”
