Zephyrus adopts PFaroe to provide pension scheme sponsors with the benefits of a cutting-edge technology platform
04 October 2016
The independent corporate pensions adviser will use PFaroe to efficiently value pension scheme liabilities and funding levels on behalf of sponsoring employers, in order to inform discussions and funding negotiations with scheme trustees.
Zephyrus Partners has adopted RiskFirst’s PFaroe as its preferred valuation tool as it targets further growth in the UK pensions advisory space. It will use the platform, on behalf of its client base of scheme sponsors, to introduce efficiency and robustness into its liability valuation and scenario testing process, with the goal of supporting their ability to proactively engage with trustees in funding and investment strategy negotiations.
Amédée Levillain, Founding Partner and Director, Zephyrus Partners, says: “We are steadily expanding our client base and breadth of advisory and reporting services so need additional resources to support our growth trajectory. PFaroe offers an ideal solution as it allows us to leverage technology to address client queries quickly and efficiently, including accurately exploring outcomes under varying assumptions. Adopting the capability of PFaroe should free up capacity within our focused team and allow us to concentrate on adding maximum value for our clients.”
He adds: “We work with a number of large corporate sponsors, some of which have unique and bespoke requirements, so we need a system that can cope with this level of complexity. We were impressed by the technical and modelling expertise within RiskFirst that supports PFaroe, so we are confident that we now have a robust and future-proofed valuation solution.”
Matthew Seymour, CEO, RiskFirst, comments: “We are delighted to work with Zephyrus to provide a system that meets their non-trivial requirements, increasing efficiency of their current operations and freeing up resources in order that they continue to grow their business.”
