We’ve partnered up with auto enrolment experts Smart Pension to provide you and your employees with the fastest and most secure pension scheme in the UK marketplace. Smart Pension was founded by experienced finance and technology professionals and has been designed specifically to support UK businesses faced with the challenges of auto enrolment.
Smart Pension’s Master Trust is regulated by The Pensions Regulator and the company has been awarded a 5-star rating by independent reviewers Defaqto for the past 3 years.
Smart Pension allows employees to be in control of their retirement planning by offering the option to self-select how funds are invested, using Smart Pension fund selection and underlying funds from Legal & General. It’s now even easier for employees to manage their pension with the new Smart Pension App, available from the Apple Store and via Google Play.
Smart Pension’s adviser and employer platforms have been designed with ease of use in mind. It takes only 3 simple steps to become signed up and compliant with government pension regulations. An interactive sign-up process automatically populates your company’s registration details in just moments, while a state-of-the-art e-signature feature allows agreements to be signed instantly online, with full security.
