Quantum Advisory announces key partnership

Partner and Pension Actuary at Quantum Advisory, Stuart Price.

Quantum Advisory, the leading independent financial services consultancy whose head office is situated in Cardiff, has announced a key partnership to share its pension and employee benefits expertise with the housing sector.

Quantum Advisory has become a commercial partner of Community Housing Cymru, the trade body for housing associations in Wales. The organisation represents 34 not-for-profit housing associations who provide almost 165,000 homes to 10% of the country’s population.

In addition to securing funding and developing policy frameworks to support its vision to make Wales a country where good housing is a basic right for all, Community Housing Cymru is committed to connecting members with each other, opportunities and industry experts.

As a commercial partner of Community Housing Cymru, Quantum Advisory will build upon their existing engagement with members by sharing valuable market and sector insights at dedicated sessions, exhibiting at the trade body’s conferences and identifying opportunities for tailored solutions.

Quantum’s specialist Housing Association service covers the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS), Social Housing Pension Scheme (SHPS), group defined contribution schemes and all other types of pension and employee benefit arrangements. The service includes full scheme reviews, annual pension strategy monitoring, assistance with pension issues surrounding corporate activity, employee financial awareness sessions, and flexible employee benefits and salary sacrifice options.

Stuart Price, partner and actuary at Quantum Advisory, said: “Quantum has enjoyed an excellent relationship with Community Housing Cymru and its members for a long time, so this partnership was a natural next step for us to continue our support for the housing sector in Wales.

“Many housing associations participate in either the LGPS or SHPS and our experience of working closely with these schemes means that we understand the advantages and challenges these arrangements bring to housing associations.”

Louise Price-David, head of member services and partnerships at Community Housing Cymru, said: “It is a pleasure to extend a warm welcome to Quantum Advisory as our newest commercial partner.

“Quantum Advisory is a leading independent financial services consultancy in the UK, specialising in pension and employee benefit services. Their expertise and tailored solutions are invaluable assets to our sector. We are excited to collaborate with Quantum Advisory to enhance financial wellbeing and drive positive outcomes for our members.”
