As global leaders in pensions, we provide market-leading technology that connects millions of members to their pension pots to help them achieve better retirement outcomes.
With over 30 years’ experience in supporting the Australian market, we have combined our global capability with a deeply experienced UK team to bring best in class DC and DB propositions to the market.
Our team is passionate about delivering outstanding services to members and we are continuously investing in our people, infrastructure and technology to ensure we support members simply and efficiently at every touchpoint.
Empowering members through simplicity, efficiency and choice
We’re bringing global investment to help the UK industry tackle legacy issues of fragmentation, multiple pots and lack of member-choice. Our mission is to empower members and employers through simplicity, efficiency and choice.
To do this, we deliver outstanding member experiences through market-leading technology, behavioural analytics and specialist services.
Delivering outstanding member
Simplicity and efficiency underpin our leading-edge servicing platform. It delivers highly automated, scalable processes and advanced personalisation capability that enable members to engage with their pensions in the way that works for them. It’s a secure, highly-customisable and multichannel solution that delivers outstanding member experiences and engagement. With in-built fraud resilience, clients and trustees can be confident that their members are well protected.
Proven over 15 years working with Australia’s largest pension funds, we’re bringing our powerful analytics capability to the UK to help you optimise your member experiences. We help you better know your members, personalise at scale and support them in making the best next action across the member journey. Where others just see member data, we see member behaviours. And we use this to simplify and enhance the member experience, drive operational efficiencies and enable effective strategic planning.
Link Group’s Analytical Link Exception Reporting Tool “ALERT” is the industry standard in the Australian pensions market to mitigate these loss events. ALERT has been specifically developed for the pension market and created in collaboration with regulators, law enforcement agencies and our existing client funds. The service, with over five years of fraud risk intelligence built into its framework and rules, provides automated account and transaction monitoring to support funds’ operational fraud control environments.

Beyond outstanding experiences. Our ambition for the UK pensions market
Over the next five years, our ambition is to help turn the UK pensions market upside down and give members real choice. We are passionate about helping people achieve healthier retirement outcomes. So, we’re setting our long-term sights on moving beyond simplifying and improving member engagement to enabling true member-centricity in the UK.
We believe this is the moment to consider new ways to drive member experience and engagement in UK pensions. You can read more about our ideas for ‘pot follows member’, a UK clearing house and recommendations for a single UK body to drive long term pensions strategy here: 'Time To Turn The UK Pensions Market Upside Down’.
What do UK really want?
As a leading pension administrator, we believe the industry can service members more simply, efficiently and with greater choice. So we are listening carefully to what members really want. Our user panel research, Consumer View, aims capture how members feel about the state of UK pensions. Consumer View study will provide an independent, unbiased view on member sentiment towards the UK pensions industry on a rolling annual basis through to 2030. We interview 1500 members nationwide that are actively engaged in their future retirement arrangements through an independent research organisation (TLF). The survey will be published in late October annually with rolling trends provided through www.pension-horizon.co.uk
