Why choose Grant Thornton?

We are a team of pension minded people

Instead of audit people doing pension audits, we have recruited a team of former pension trustees and administrators who understand the issues and craft innovative solutions to our client’s pension audits. Grant Thornton implements a solution to a problem that many of our competitors haven’t yet even considered.

Value and experience

Most trustees are seeking value, but want to work with the large well-established practices. We are the lowest priced of the top tier. And we guarantee that the price agreed at the start of your relationship with us will be maintained, unless there is a serious change of scope. 

Focus and reporting

As we are ex-pensions people, we have a vast knowledge of the issues which enables us to focus on the key areas of risk, the investment value and contribution where we do the majority of our work. Coupled with our powerful data analysis software, we can identify and analyse movements and flows, irrespective of volume, providing time-saving, real-time information to assist trustees and administrators in decision-making.

Contact us to arrange a discussion with like-minded people who understand your needs.
