We’re one of the UK’s leading workplace pension providers, managing over 14,300 pension schemes for around 4.3 million members on behalf of all types of companies – from the biggest household names to small and medium-sized businesses alike.
The reasons we’re considered an employer’s workplace pension provider of choice include:
Competitive, modern workplace pensions
Our size and scale enable us to offer a range of high-quality trust and contract-based workplace pension products with very competitive annual management fees. The flexibility of our products also provides scheme members with access to the full range of and ESG tilted investments. We manage each scheme with the latest regulations in mind - so, every employer receives the reassurance that its employees are accessing a modern, well-governed pension scheme.
Wide range of investment options
With us, scheme members enjoy access to over a hundred different investment funds from leading fund managers. To make investment decisions easier for your employees, we also offer our Target Date Funds and lifestyle profiles. We can also provide an investment-only solution for companies that want to retain an existing pension scheme with another provider.
Member communications and engagement
One key measure of success for any workplace pension is the engagement from employees.
For a scheme to be successful, employees must fully understand and engage with their workplace pension. We help companies achieve good engagement right from the start, when setting up a new scheme and throughout the journey to retirement with a range of member facing communications including online tools, scheme websites, personalised videos and annual pension benefit statements.
Seamless implementation and scheme transfers
Our service and support is designed to make setting up a new workplace pension scheme seamless. From assistance in winding up an old scheme through to transferring the assets across from another provider, our experienced team is on hand to make the transition hassle-free.
Easy online administration and ongoing management
Most aspects of managing a workplace pension scheme can be performed on our ‘Manage Your Scheme’ system. This is an online pension administration service designed to make it simple for employers to administer a workplace pension. Among other things, it enables employers to manage employee data and contributions, access our automatic enrolment eligibility tool and monitor the scheme and its investment options.
We believe that taking steps to address environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues in our investment process isn’t just about helping to create a better world – it can also be better for our members’ retirement savings. This is because companies that look after their employees, manage their environmental impact and have robust governance can be in a stronger position to provide sustainable long-term returns on investments.
