Towers Watson & Co. operates as a professional services company worldwide. The company is operating from 113 markets in 37 countries throughout the Americas, Europe, the Asia-Pacific, South Africa, and the Middle East. The company offers solutions in the areas of employee benefits, talent management, rewards, risk and capital management and healthcare exchanges for both retirees and active employees. Segments The company has four segments: Benefits, Exchange Solutions, Risk and Financial Services, and Talent and Rewards. Benefits segment This segment provides benefits consulting and administration services through four lines of business, including Retirement, Health and Group Benefits, Technology and Administration Solutions (TAS), and International Consulting. Retirement As an advisor on retirement plans, the company provides actuarial and consulting services for large defined benefit and defined contribution plans, including consulting on plan design, funding and risk management strategies. The company provides actuarial services to approximately 300 pension funds worldwide than any other consulting firm. In the U.S., the company provide actuarial services to five of the six major corporate-sponsored defined benefit plans (based on total pension plan assets), and in the U.K., the company advises 52 of the 100 major pension funds and provide retirement services to 57% of the FTSE 100 and 26% of FTSE 350 companies. The company also has major positions in Canada, Germany, and the Netherlands. The company offers clients a range of integrated retirement consulting services to meet the needs of all types of employers — including those that continue to offer defined benefit plans and those that are reexamining their retirement benefit strategies. For clients that want to outsource some or all of their pension plan management, the company offers integrated solutions that combine investment consulting, pension administration, core actuarial services, and communication and change management assistance. The company’s retirement consulting services include retirement strategy and plan design; actuarial services and related support; retirement plan financial management; settlement solutions, such as lump sum cash outs, longevity swaps and annuity purchases; compliance and governance strategies; risk management, such as liability-driven investment changes; and defined contribution solutions. Seasonality: Revenue for the retirement business is typically seasonal, as majority of the company’s work pertains to calendar-year-end reporting and compliance related to the completion of pension plan valuations; thus, the third quarter of its fiscal year (year ended June 2015) is typically the strongest quarter. Health and Group Benefits The company provides plan management consulting across the spectrum of health and group benefit programs, including health, dental, disability, life and other coverage. The company provides services to large and mid-size organizations. The company’s health and group benefits consulting services help employers provide health and welfare benefits designed to attract and retain qualified employees, while improving workforce health and productivity. To meet its clients' global health and group benefit needs, the company has expanded its geographic footprint of health and group benefit operations. In the last 12 months, the company has opened health and group benefit operations — including obtaining brokerage licenses — in Colombia, Mexico, the Philippines, Singapore, and South Korea; and is working on setting up operations in various additional countries. The company also acquired 26% of a local Indian broker. Between the company’s own operations and third party broking partners, it could provide health and group benefits advice and services in approximately 100 countries. In addition to the company’s consulting services, it manages various collective purchasing initiatives (pharmacy and stop-loss) that enable employers to realize value from third-party service providers than they can on their own. The company has rolled out GlobalAccess, a platform for the provision of pr
