Moving your scheme to the Smart Pension Master Trust
If you’re involved in the financial or resourcing side of your business, you’ll know that running an employer pension scheme is a big responsibility. It’s only right that you’ll want to do all you can today to provide a comfortable retirement for your employees in the future. At Smart Pension, we know it’s all about value. Both you, and the employees you look after, need a fair deal when it comes to investment returns, protection and pricing.
The master trust mindset
Increasing numbers of UK employers are choosing a master trust pension scheme. They are doing so because they want to make sure that what they offer is cost-effective, compliant and convenient – with no corners cut in protecting their own – and their employees’ – interests.
In a nutshell, employers are moving to master trust arrangements to ensure:
Careful and independent decision-making, improved security and reduced risk
Better value for money
From economies of scale and reductions in the time, money and resources spent on scheme administration and management
Better member outcomes
Helping members to get the very best out of their pension, both before and after retirement
A helping hand with the heavy lifting
Smart Pension has rapidly become one of the largest providers of workplace pensions in the UK, with backing from global financial giants including Legal & General and J.P. Morgan. Our master trust is authorised by The Pensions Regulator, so you can be sure it meets quality standards and offers high levels of protection and security.
Because we know the pension business inside out, we know that moving your own workplace scheme can seem like a daunting process – and so it is, if you’re not 100% sure of how it all works. However, we’ve helped countless employers sail their way through the changing waters of the pension industry. Getting it right is about skills, market knowledge, experience and service – and you know what practice makes, don’t you?
