For far too long, pensions have been difficult to understand, resulting in us not saving enough for retirement. Our mission is fix things – by making pensions simple and engaging. We do this by helping customers combine their pensions into one online plan. And once they’ve joined us, we help them to manage, contribute and withdraw money from any device they like (including our mobile app).
We’ve been doing this since 2015, and in that time we’ve built the UK’s fastest growing and most loved pension brand. From a clear and simple transfer journey, to a beautiful app, easy top-ups, and stress-free withdrawals, we’re building a pension service that’s fit for today, and for tomorrow.
We’re also on a crusade to challenge and change bad practices in the pensions industry, including excessive transfer times, unthinkable exit fees, complicated paperwork, difficult jargon and generally outdated processes. This means speaking up when things are unfair.
We’re London-based (Borough Market / Southbank) and backed by some of the world’s biggest money managers. State Street is one of our biggest external shareholders since December 2018.
