Our goals and ethos

The support you need

Our goal is to provide interesting, worthwhile and healthy careers for our people.

We look after our staff first and foremost, but for a commercial purpose, which is to deliver great service profitably. By focusing on our goal we provide the best outcomes for pension scheme members, trustees and employers.

We value individual and collective commitment. It is achieved through carefully balancing responsibility with freedom and flexibility, all of which is underpinned by a willingness to work interdependently. When we get this balance right it is how we do our best work.
