How does it work?
Sirius allows us to provide integrated actuarial and investment advice to trustees and sponsors of defined benefit schemes. We base this advice on the real-time information we get from Sirius regarding the funding level of your scheme and your scheme’s end-game objectives.
Focus on your scheme's journey plan
Sirius’ integrated dashboard allows you to monitor and consider investment, contributions and funding strategy to achieve long-term objectives.
Actuarial valuations – explore ‘what if’ scenarios for liability assumptions and recovery plan contribution options.
Investment performance – monitor performance against liabilities and performance of investment managers.
Funding updates – track your scheme funding level on a variety of bases. Sirius is updated daily to give you real-time insight.
Cashflow coverage – visualise and compare asset and liability cashflows to design an investment strategy that provides sufficient liquidity.
Asset allocation – visualise risk and return for different allocation strategies, agree optimal asset allocation and how it should develop.
Derisking – monitor insurance company pricing and understand the impact of liability management exercises.
Trigger monitoring – design trigger framework and track funding against triggers.
Hedging – design an investment strategy that provides the right match for the liabilities.
User friendly – we have designed the system to help you understand the financing of your scheme so that you can focus on the important decisions, without cutting out important detail.
Constantly updated – Sirius automatically updates for the latest financial conditions allowing up to the minute scheme financing to be tracked.
Fully integrated – we will use Sirius to provide all our actuarial and investment advice so that investment and funding decisions are joined up.
Accessible anytime – you will be able to log into Sirius to get an updated funding level and track how the scheme is performing against the agreed plan.
Future proof – we have designed Sirius to be ready for the forthcoming Pension Regulator Code of Practice on funding and can customise it for any further changes.
