Investment Management Consultancy Services

IMPORTANT: In these exceptional circumstances, we have agreed with providers to extend the Investment Management Consultancy Services Framework by 12 months. The new expiry date for this Framework is 31st October 2022. Please be assured that our intention remains to re-let the Investment Management Consultancy Services Framework from November 2022.

The fully refreshed and re-structured Investment Management Consultancy Services Framework was launched in October 2017 and will be available for Further Competition and Direct Award until October 2021. Contracts awarded under the Framework may have a maximum duration of seven years.

The Framework is split across three Lots:

  • Lot 1 - Investment Consultancy Services
  • Lot 2 - Manager Search, Selection, Monitoring and Review Services
  • Lot 3 - Investment Management Consultancy-related Specialist Services

There are ten Providers across the three Lots as follows:

Please note: Marsh & McLennan Companies (MMC) completed their acquisition of Jardine Lloyd Thompson Group plc (JLT) on 1 April 2019. The integration of JLT Employee Benefits into Mercer has now been completed. All services provided by JLT Employee Benefits on the Investment Management Consultancy Services Framework will now be offered by Mercer. Therefore JLT can no longer be invited to Further Competition.

Please note: The takeover of KPMG's pensions advisory practice by Iseran Bidco has now been completed, and they have rebranded as Isio. If you are planning to go out to Further Competition under the Investment Management Consultancy Services Framework please invite Isio to bid in the usual way, their contact details can be found in their updated Provider Catalogue.
