Defined Benefit Plans

Aon offers sophisticated solutions for Defined Benefit (DB) plans to help balance risk and reward over the plan life cycle. Whether your plan is an open, active part of your employee benefit program, or a frozen plan that needs an effective risk management strategy, our experienced advisors are here to help. Our DB solutions are guided by industry best practices that strive to help improve governance, systematically reduce risk and meet investment goals:

Actuarial Services

Expert actuarial oversight can make the difference between a DB plan that delivers results and one that falls flat. As a proven leader in DB actuarial valuation and consulting, Aon’s actuarial services help consistently mitigate risks for U.S. and global DB plans.

DB Investment Solutions

We offer a spectrum of investment services to suit the level of engagement that’s right for you–from traditional investment advisory consulting to partial delegation to Outsourced Chief Investment Officer (OCIO).

Delegated Pension Manager

Delegated Pension Manager (DPM) provides integrated, end-to-end plan management. DPM helps consolidate vendors, reduce fees, and streamline communications, by bundling actuarial, investments and pension administration with a single provider.

Pension Risk Management

We collaborate with sponsors to determine objectives, develop asset/liability management strategies and put control levers in place for plan sponsors. Our solutions cover pension risk transfer, lump sum windows and distributions, plan termination and liability-driven investing.

Pension Administration

Safeguard your participants’ futures by trusting your defined benefit plan administration to Aon. We leverage technical experts to deliver high-quality integrated retirement services. Our customized services include outsourcing, co-sourcing and in-sourcing options.
