What we offer
Our trust-based pensions are aimed at medium to large employers, offering specialist governance, implementation and asset transition services. We have supported nearly 8,000 employers with assets over £10.5 billion.
Our Trust-based pension schemes
We offer several different Trust-based pension schemes.
The value of investments can go down as well as up and members may get back less than has been paid in.
Aviva Master Trust
Aimed at medium to large employers, our award-winning Master Trust combines expert governance with quality investment choice and can be tailored to suit the specific needs of an employer’s plans.
Own Rules Trust
This scheme is overseen by your own board of trustees. We work directly with the board to provide administration services and retirement benefits for members.
Group Additional Voluntary Contribution
Our group AVC plan sits alongside an employer’s occupational scheme and lets members pay in extra to build up their personal fund.
Section 32 Buy-out
Gives employers and trustees a hassle-free way to either wind up a scheme or transfer deferred members. It offers security and peace of mind for both trustees and members.
Aviva Master Trust
Aviva Master Trust is an award-winning pension solution, that’s authorised by the Pensions Regulator and aimed at medium to large employers. It combines expert governance provided by its fully-independent trustees with quality default investment solutions and investment fund choices.
