The small scheme journey to buy-out
How we can help
Citrus makes it easy for employers
The costs of running DB schemes have soared in recent years. With legislative change and tighter regulatory scrutiny, smaller schemes are faced with additional pressures and an increasing governance burden. The time commitment required can divert attention away from running businesses.
We are a long-established DB master trust, one trust in which each employer has its own section, with assets of over £320 million and over 4,000 members.
We help employers develop a clear strategy to achieve the objectives of their DB pension scheme, achieving more for less through cost-sharing and the benefits of scale. As a scheme created by employers for employers, we do this to deliver a better service at a lower cost, not to drive profits.
