Corporate Pension Plans

Protecting your employees' retirement at a cost you can afford

Your employees depend on your prudent decisions for a healthy retirement. You take the long view, carefully monitor risk, navigate regulatory changes, and continually seek to lower costs. Whether your plan is open, frozen, or you have multiple plan types under your watch, Callan can help you every step of the way.

As one of the largest, independent investment consulting firms, we’ve advised many of the most complex corporate investment teams and boards over the past four decades.

We’ve listened and learned from clients like you, crafting a listen-first, peer-reviewed process to align our advice with your specific considerations. Your unique goals and complexities require a tailored approach. 

For many clients, the defined benefit plan has become a legacy benefit offering that needs to be managed in terms of cost, financial statement impact, and time. We can help you do those things.

Our experienced, responsive consultants — backed by expert researchers and specialty teams — will work with you to create a true investment partnership that keeps your needs and goals at the center of the conversation.
