To achieve value for money and get the right scheme for your business, you need to spend time doing your research.

Or do you?

There’s a wide range of options available for employers and trustees as to which type of Defined Contribution (DC) pension scheme to offer employees, be that for example own trust, master trust or contract-based (e.g. Group Personal Pension).

Selecting the right type of pension scheme to suit your requirements, workforce and budget is vital. Selecting the right pension provider to be a long term partner to your organisation and deliver a first class proposition is a key decision for any employer or trustee board.

Luckily, we’ve done the in-depth research so you don’t have to.

In-depth research
