Data Governance

Increasing expectations for self-service, emergence of the Pensions Dashboards and renewed focus from The Pensions Regulator (TPR) means added pressures on the day-to-day running of pension schemes.

At Aquila Heywood, we help customers navigate the complexity of data quality and data accuracy. We work with you to build a flexible governance strategy that is responsive to changing regulatory requirements and your circumstances.

Conforms with legislative guidelines and best practice

Accurately values scheme assets and liabilities

Improve your Data Quality, Transform your Service

Aquila Heywood works closely with you to understand the quality of your data and the impact this has on your ability to offer high-quality and cost-effective administration. This insight allows a detailed strategy to be developed, which offers the most effective way to improve your service to members, while optimising operational efficiency.

What our Customers Say:

By being a part of the pilot and seeing the outputs, my opinion of what the service offered has changed, as although I knew it would be useful, the report produced provides more than just a TPR box-ticking exercise. We will get far more value out of it by being able to target improvements to our data.
