Employee benefit firm Gissings has been appointed to provide actuarial and advisory services to the Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers Union final salary pension fund.
The scheme actuary for the fund, which has over 100 members and assets worth £6m, will be Richard Crowhurst who joined Gissings from Bacon & Woodrow.
He was also scheme actuary for the fund when he worked at B&W.
Under the 1995 Pensions Act all scheme actuaries are appointed on an individual basis, so his appointment is treated as ongoing.
He said “ I am delighted the trustees have chosen to retain me as their scheme actuary. I look forward to continuing with this role.”
Gissings, which was founded in 1970, specialises in providing pensions, healthcare and employee benefits for large, medium and small companies throughout the UK.
