Who we are

About us

08454 334 199

Let’s start with who we are not. We are not dull pension’s people. We are a team of pension experts who love what they do.

We have over 30 years experience in the pension industry, our combined skills from customer relationship management, developing technology based solutions through to creating slick procedures and best practice protocols means we cover all bases.

We deliver with enthusiasm and a sense of humour. Our strap line is intensely professional and refreshingly informal, we really do live it every day. Our way of working is to keep it simple but effective. We develop great and long lasting relationships with our clients with our ‘client team’ approach. We can support your internal pension’s team, if you have one, or act as your ‘in house’ pensions expert, out of house.

We thrive on meeting the challenges facing trustees and creating innovative solutions is what we do.

Recognised as industry leaders, we are regularly invited to speak at conferences to scheme sponsors, trustees and members as well as to fellow industry experts. We write pensions articles for professional press and comment and write blogs for like-minded pensions specialists to follow.

The team

Michael Clark


Seeing my grandparents struggle with money throughout their life had a profound influence on me. This was compounded when I worked in the DHSS where I saw many people in a state of poverty.

I realised how fortunate I was and that it was important for me to help people have enough money in retirement.

I could have been an IFA helping individuals, but my work as a pension trustee helps companies with thousands of members provide a decent pension scheme ensuring they all have enough money to enjoy their retirement.

The decisions trustees and companies make through my advice and intervention impacts on whether or not people get a pension and that is the very thing that drives me. Ensuring that the pension scheme is run effectively so that their employees get the right pension at the right time is my absolute passion.

I have over 30 years of experience in the pensions industry having helped many clients achieve their desired result from their pension scheme.

I like to keep it simple but effective through developing great relationships with my clients, developing technology based solutions through to creating slick procedures and best practice protocols to cover all bases.

That’s why we at CBC thrive on meeting the challenges facing trustees and creating innovative solutions for our clients.
