Our WorkSave Pension Mastertrust offers all the flexibility and benefits of a trust based scheme but without you taking on the responsibility of running a trustee board.

It's a multi-employer scheme. Each participating employer is treated as a separate scheme within the Mastertrust.

It can help you manage the long-term cost of pension provision, especially with auto enrolment, by reducing future liabilities attached to running your own Defined Contributions Scheme. It can also offer a high level of scheme governance to benefit you and your employees.

We can provide a flexible approach to tailoring your scheme according to your budget, contractual obligations and company ethos.
