XPS Pensions Group is a leading pensions consulting and administration business fully focused on UK pension schemes.

Who we are

Our purpose as a firm is to create a fully sustainable business that allows us to build long-term relationships with our clients, offers a great place to work for our people and delivers value to all our stakeholders.

As the only UK pensions specialist listed on the London Stock Exchange Main Market, we have the flexibility to think and act differently.

We advise on all things workplace pensions related. We help trustees and employers run pension schemes for the benefit of both current and former employees and we support scheme members in a way that is relevant, innovative and easily digestible.

  • 1,500+ clients
  • One Million member pensions administered
  • 16 locations across the UK
  • 99% of clients agree we are collaborative in our approach and enjoy working with us
  • 93% expressed satisfaction with the overall relationship…including more than 3 out of 4 who are very satisfied, extremely satisfied or delighted
  • 86% say they would definitely recommend XPS or are at least likely to do so.

We deliver an award-winning, full-service offering to trustees and sponsors of defined benefit and defined contribution schemes that is focused on one thing – a clear purpose to ensure better long-term outcomes for pension schemes to protect their members and benefit society.

We provide insight, opinion and guidance to shape and support safe, robust and well-understood pension schemes, whilst at the same time challenging industry norms.

We think “member first”. We act with integrity and deliver our expertise with agility, responding quickly as the world around our clients and our people shifts.

Equity, Diversity & Inclusion

Our annual XPS Values in Practice Programme launched in 2020 and celebrates people and teams who truly embody XPS values.

Our five Employee Networks – XPS Women’s Network, XPS LGBTQ+ Network, XPS Menopause Network, XPS Disability Network and XPS Multicultural Network – play an important role in our culture.

They lead our inclusive programme of events, campaigns and workshops, such as celebrating International Women’s and Men’s Days, Pride Month and Black History Month, our Be Yourself at Work campaign and our workshops on LGBTQ+ Allyship, the importance of self-promotion for women’s careers, menopause awareness and confidence when speaking up. Our internal mentoring programme also has a role to play, for example in advancing gender equality.


Being a responsible business has always been important to us. Doing the right thing is at the core of our strategy and how we operate across the business. So much so, it is embedded within our corporate purpose, mission, vision and values.

Our purpose

We exist to shape and support safe, robust and well-understood pension schemes for the benefit of people and society.

Our mission

We strive to be leaders in pensions, investment consulting and administration with brilliant people and leading technology delivering better outcomes for pension scheme members and rewarding careers for our people.

Our vision

We will constantly challenge the pensions industry to improve and achieve better outcomes for members.

The sustainability approach we have in place to ensure we are the responsible business we aspire to be is focused on five pillars below, each with their own overriding goal.

Our practices are reflected in our membership of the FTSE4Good Index, and Business in the Community – the Prince’s Responsible Business Network.

Our approach to sustainability

To ensure we incorporate market best practice at all times and that we meet the needs and expectations of all our stakeholders, our approach to sustainability is constantly evolving. So, whenever we achieve any of our goals, we’ll set ourselves more targets and then get to work to deliver these too.

Our sustainability approach is a journey, one that will continue to evolve.

Our Purpose

At XPS, we exist to shape and support safe, robust and well-understood pension schemes for the benefit of people and society.

Our purpose is central to everything we do. It’s reflected in our values, our culture, the investment we make in our people and our commitment to inclusion and diversity. It also shows in our client relationships as well as how we operate in our local communities.

Our values

  • We are ambitious
  • We are agile
  • We are helpful
  • We are experts
  • We do the right thing

Our mission

Our values at XPS guide us as we live our purpose. They are at the heart of everything we do and the shared spirit that makes us one team.

Of course, it’s one thing to agree words amongst ourselves. It’s another to bring those words to life.

Enter our people – our problem solvers, our forward thinkers, our hard workers. Whether in our actuarial, investment, administration, HR, marketing, legal or systems departments, all our people work with a societal purpose. It’s the XPS way.

Our people deliver for us. It’s only right therefore that we deliver for them. Our People Approach is designed to do just that and we pride ourselves on delivering around inclusivity, opportunities for all, flexibility, wellbeing and, last but not least, fun!

Being a Responsible Business

Sustainability, environmental, social and governance (ESG) affects everyone. As doing the right thing is a fundamental aspect of our culture, all parts of the business have responsibility for how our activities affect the environment and how we can reduce our impacts so that we all have a more stable environmental and financial future. We are using our knowledge and expertise to help both us and our clients to get to net zero.
