“Asset Liability Suite enables us to keep track of our long term journey plan in real time, allowing us to address any opportunities or concerns that arise in a timely way - significantly contributing to our overall governance framework.”
Tesco Pension Trustees Limited
“Asset Liability Suite enables us to track the financial position of the various segregated sections within the Plan both on the funding and accounting bases. With Channel we can monitor the balance sheet and projected pension expense position as we approach the year-end which helps us manage expectations within the Group. It also provides useful information arranged to correspond to each reporting unit within our business.”
“Channel has given me the ability to independently monitor our IAS 19 pension liabilities on a more regular basis, and has improved the accuracy of our internal reporting”
“We use Asset Liability Suite to monitor the schemes’ funding positions, which can now be obtained instantly. A key function of Asset Liability Suite is to help measure progress against the schemes’ journey plans – for example, the triggers module plays an important part in this because it gives an early alert for de-risking and investment strategy decisions that may need to be taken. In addition, the risk module supplements the regular reporting of key risk statistics.”
Lloyds Banking Group
Pension Investment and Finance Team
“In the five years since we started using Asset Liability Suite to track our assets and liabilities, the Plan’s funding position has significantly improved. Five years ago the Plan had a substantial deficit, now we are close to being fully funded. This improvement was due to many factors – one of the main ones was our decision to implement a dynamic asset strategy that linked directly to Asset Liability Suite. Setting up pre-agreed funding level trigger points that were tracked daily by Asset Liability Suite, enabled a nimble de-risking action as soon as the time was right, locking in on beneficial investment performance. Over time, although funding and asset strategies have changed, Asset Liability Suite continues to help us move closer to self-sufficiency and to improve the security for our members.”
