Benchmark against your peers
The scorecard is generated from a 50-question multiple choice questionnaire covering a range of areas. The questions are not technical, and most trustees, pensions managers and scheme secretaries should be able to answer the questions without much difficulty.
Based on those responses, schemes are provided with an overall score, as well as a sub-score in each of 10 distinct areas and analysis of how they compare to other schemes in our database.
In practice, while the overall score provides a good headline comparison against other schemes, the score itself is less important than the various actions that schemes are taking and the thoughts generated by considering the questions.
The results so far
Over 200 schemes have already completed Aon’s assessment. Aon has also written the findings from the first 100 schemes in a free 30 page report which can be downloaded here.
