Ipswich Town Appoints Now: Pensions As Its Auto Enrolment Provider

Wed 23rd Oct 2013 | Money & Finance

Ipswich Town Football Club has appointed NOW: Pensions, the independent multi-employer trust, as the provider of its workplace pension under auto enrolment.

From 1 November 2013, NOW: Pensions will be responsible for delivering workplace pensions for Ipswich Town’s 600 employees who are eligible for auto enrolment including office staff, match day casuals and match day stewards.

Morten Nilsson, CEO of NOW: Pensions, said: “With a high proportion of casual staff employed only during the football season, football clubs both large and small face unique challenges and added complication when it comes to auto enrolment.

“We are delighted to have been selected by Ipswich Town Football Club to help guide them through the complexities of auto enrolment.”

Denise Booth, Management Accountant, Ipswich Town, said: “When it came to selecting a provider for auto enrolment, the list of demands was long.

“Firstly, we wanted to find a scheme that would cover all our employees including our multitude of casual staff that only work on match days. We also wanted to find a provider that was low cost both to us as an employer and to our employees.

“It was also essential that the scheme was well managed so that employees would feel confident that their pension was delivering on its promises.

“After an extensive search, we selected NOW: Pensions as it ticked all the boxes and more.”

NOW: Pensions is a multi-employer trust. The investments are managed by NOW: Pensions Investments, a subsidiary of ATP in Denmark, and the administration is carried out by Paymaster, an established UK third party administrator.
