New guide to help SME's choose a pension scheme

The Pensions’ Regulator has made it easier for small and micro employers to choose a pension scheme, with the publication of a new quick guide on what to look out for when picking the right scheme for their staff. It has also published a list of master trust pension schemes that are prepared to accept business from employers of all sizes and that have been independently reviewed to show they are administered to a high standard.

Links can also be found, on its website, to NEST, the pension scheme set up by government that has a public service obligation to accept all employers, and to lists from the Association of British Insurers and the National Association of Pension Funds.
