UK - The £160m Thomson Travel Group Pension Scheme is undergoing an actuarial valuation, conducted by Hymans Robertson.
Hyman’s bagged a mandate from Thomson travel to provide actuarial and consulting advice to the firm’s final salary scheme with around 6,000 members.
Thomson's was not available for further comment.
Hyman’s was hired after a beauty parade of five undisclosed firms following the retirement of Thomson’s previous actuary, RN Jarvis. Mary Ann McNally will coordinate the team overseeing the pension fund. Ross Russell will take on the formal scheme actuary appointment.
The firm already advises pension funds in the private and public sectors worth over £60bn.
