Why we Chose Aviva?

We think that Aviva's Company Pension is a great commercial workplace pension scheme, with competitive member charges and a low monthly charge for the employer.

Aviva have a long history in pensions and investments and already manages millions of customers’ pensions: they are well-established and are a familiar ‘brand’ for your staff.

Aviva is a large enough organisation to cope with the huge influx of employers needing to find a pension scheme in the next few years. Smaller providers may struggle to meet their deadlines, particularly the large number of master trusts being created by solicitors, IFAs and Employee Benefits Consultants. Some smaller master trusts have already fallen foul of The Pensions Regulator’s rules and ceased trading, and others have merged with fellow master trusts to gain market share. Stability and longevity are crucial when choosing the right scheme for your workforce.

 All of the pension scheme administration is done in-house at Aviva. In-house tends to lead to committed and highly knowledgeable staff, lower costs and a higher degree of accuracy.

The in-house, UK based customer service teams at Aviva provide comprehensive support and services - the people you speak to are employees of Aviva, not outsourced or overseas staff, and they know their stuff!

 Aviva's Company Pension has been awarded a 5-star rating by Defaqto, a well-known independent financial researcher. Defaqto independently rates services based on the quality and comprehensiveness of the features and benefits they offer, and to be awarded the maximum 5 stars means that they've found the Company Pension to be 'an excellent product, with a comprehensive range of features and benefits'.
