‘The voice of small schemes’

Atkin Pensions focus on providing a supportive, innovative and collaborative service to small and medium-sized pension schemes which require a more hands-on and thoughtful approach than larger schemes; A personal approach combined with innovative thinking and practical solutions to help you manage your defined benefit scheme in a cost-effective manner.


Small schemes: a better way

Pensions are important and complicated for both members and their sponsoring employers. Large schemes, by virtue of their size, have to rely on systems and processes. Smaller schemes do not have to, they can be person led. Atkin Pensions provide:

  • Small client teams that understand the scheme, its sponsor and the membership
  • Administrators who speak to your members to help them understand their scheme and benefits
  • Experienced client managers who apply commercial common sense to problems based on a deep understanding of your circumstances
