We have chosen our partners quite simply because they are the world’s best at what they do. We think we’re pretty good too, but recognise we are greater than the sum of our parts, working towards a common goal – improving retirement outcomes for the maritime community.

Ensign’s experienced Trustee Board is supported by the following partners and advisers:

Rock Pensions: proudly delivers top-notch executive and secretarial services.

Aegon: the international life assurance, pensions and asset management provider took over as administrator from BlackRock in 2018. Its dedicated pension administration team comprises tried-and-tested former BlackRock specialists.

Aegon’s TargetPlan online tool, allows members to monitor and manage their accounts 24/7; check pension pot values; review and select investment funds; change retirement ages; and calculate future incomes and their makeup

No wonder then, that we are independently recognised for high-quality pension administration and good governance, low charges and clear communications. Collectively, we aim to provide an exceptional product for members, offering the best returns, customer care, convenience and latest technology. It is our responsibility to ensure we are doing right by members and employers alike, which is why we are, and demand to be, routinely subject to the highest levels of financial and legal scrutiny.
