As scheme governance expectations increase, understanding a scheme sponsor’s financial strength is ever more in focus. Join Tom Partridge and Simon Kew of Teneo, as they provide an interactive insight to the UK’s ‘employer covenant’ regime and how that might be used to help the Irish market react to Pensions Authority guidance.
Tom is a Senior Managing Director with Teneo in London, having joined Teneo as part of its purchase of Deloitte’s UK Restructuring business. Prior to the acquisition, Tom led Deloitte’s Financial Advisory – Pensions practice. His experience includes advising lenders, corporates and pension trustees across a range of restructuring and transaction scenarios as well as employer covenant assessment in a scheme valuation context. Tom has completed secondments in the Scheme Funding team at the UK’s Pensions Regulator and the Business Support team at Lloyds Banking Group.
Simon leads on strategy and relationships for Teneo Pensions Advisory across the UK and Ireland, encompassing clients, intermediaries, regulators and government. Simon’s focus is on pensions-related advisory services that include the provision of advice to trustees and corporates as part of the scheme funding process, by way of a covenant assessment or through regular monitoring, helping to find innovative solutions to funding issues or supporting relevant parties in mergers, acquisitions or wider restructuring. A former ‘Pensions Regulator’, Simon is a high-profile industry figure and is frequently asked to judge awards throughout Europe, speak at events or quote for the press as an expert on employer covenant and pensions regulation.
