Your pension plan is part of the Legal & General Mastertrust scheme. The Mastertrust is a defined contribution (or money purchase) pension scheme which different employers can join. It is overseen by a board of Trustees who are legally bound to look after your money and put your best interests first.
The Trustees appoint Legal & General Assurance Society Limited to administer the Scheme on their behalf.
Your employer has joined the Mastertrust by deed of participation. If you'd like more information on how the Mastertrust works you can visit the Mastertrust website:
