Selecting and setting up a Defined Contribution pension provider

Choosing the right Defined Contribution pension for your employees can be daunting, but we’ll help you get it right

The explosive growth in the pensions market has made it much harder to select a provider.

Since auto-enrolment was introduced in 2012, more than 70 new organisations have started offering pensions. Selecting a good Defined Contribution pension provider is important but where do you start? The market is incredibly broad ‒ varying from mass market auto-enrolment schemes, to insurance companies and niche providers. And as many organisations discover to their cost, not all of them are fit for purpose.

How can First Actuarial help you choose the most suitable Defined Contribution pension provider?

Our in-depth experience of the pension industry isn’t something we keep to ourselves. We understand how pension providers work and what they can offer you. Our dedicated research team reviews the market and meets with providers, so we can match the right one to your needs.

First Actuarial case studies

Hachette UK

Hachette UK, one of the UK’s largest publishing groups, turned to First Actuarial to help improve staff engagement with pensions.

“One of the things I like about First Actuarial is that they’re very responsive. You never have to chase them for anything. They’re pragmatic and cost-effective.”



The RSPB was determined to minimise the impact of its new defined contribution scheme on employees, and appointed First Actuarial to support the transition and select a provider with strong ethical values.

“I would definitely recommend working with First Actuarial. Their consultants went over and above the call of duty to make sure the project progressed smoothly.”


Bolton Cares

Taking responsibility for care services previously provided by a local authority, Bolton Cares turned to First Actuarial for help in setting up a competitive and affordable DC pension scheme for its staff.

“They’ve been really helpful and professional throughout the project, and we’ll use them again if we need specialist advice.”
