Is your ‘Gold Plated’ pension reliant on the success of a struggling company?

Download your FREE e-guide now to find out how to take back control of your defined benefit pension scheme.

Employing 43,000 people around the world, the compulsory liquidation of Carillion has sent shock waves through the business world. Why Carillion's failure matters to you

After issuing a profit warning last year, the task of managing a debt of £1.5bn which included a whopping £600m pension deficit became even harder. Carillion’s situation isn’t unique, in fact many other large companies who offered ‘gold plated’ final salary pension schemes have hit the headlines in recent years.

The collapse of retailer BHS, although not solely caused by the £571 million pension black hole on its balance sheet, shone the spotlight on other large firms with final salary pension schemes. Faced with a £2.8 billion deficit, British Airways announced it will close its final salary scheme this year.

Other companies known to have large deficits include Royal Dutch Shell, BP, BT and BAE Systems; with all four believed to have a deficit in excess of £6 billion in 2016.

As a UK national living overseas, failing to act now could see your retirement dreams slip through your hands.
