Is it time to upgrade your employer pension?
Ask yourself three questions:


Do you know how much your employees are charged for their pension scheme?


Is your pension administration quick and easy to run each month?


Do your employees have access to the latest technology to manage their pension?

If you answered no to any of those, it may be time to review your pension scheme and see what Smart Pension can offer you.

Frequently asked questions

I have a trust-based pension scheme – can I switch to Smart Pension?

Yes you can. Visit our Upgrade a trust-based pension scheme page for more information and how you can get in touch with us.

Usually, from our experience, companies switch to Smart Pension due to cost. After reviewing the costs of paying for their own trustees, governance, scheme administration and investment strategy, companies tend to conclude that moving to a master trust pension provider (like Smart Pension) is far more cost effective.

Simple economies of scale mean that if a smaller, trust-based pension scheme transfers to a larger pension scheme, the costs of running the scheme (including admin, investment and governance) are much less because they are shared amongst participating employers.

Can you tell me more about the Smart Pension Master Trust?

Smart Pension is an award-winning pension platform and the Smart Pension Master Trust is authorised and supervised by The Pensions Regulator (TPR). Our master trust scheme helps hundreds of thousands of members and has underlying funds in Barclays, J.P. Morgan, HSBC UK, Natixis and Legal & General.

How is the Smart Pension Master Trust governed?

We have an independent board of trustees who make sure our pension scheme follows pension legislation and act in members' best interests at all times. Our board has extensive experience in the pension industry. Andy Cheseldine chairs our board and has been named as one of the top 25 most influential investment consultants in the past five years - a testament to his reputation. Andy has over 35 years of experience in consulting on defined benefit (DB) and defined contribution (DC) pension schemes. Meet our trustees here.
