Trafalgar House appointed to Imerys UK Pension Scheme
March 6, 2018

Trafalgar House, a pensions administration specialist, has today announced its appointment as administrator to the Imerys UK Pension Scheme – a defined benefit pension scheme with 6,600 members and over £700 million in assets. This appointment consolidates services from the scheme's existing third-party provider and in-house operation.

Edwin Bruce-Gardner of PS Independent Trustees, Chairman of the Trustee, said: "When we first set out to find a new administrator our main priority was selecting a provider who, like our in-house team, was focused on delivering exceptional service standards and member care. After undertaking a full market review and thorough selection process, it was clear that Trafalgar House shared our values in that regard, as well as possessing innovative systems that will help us to continue to enhance the service. We are confident that we made the right choice."

Jeremy Barnard, HR Director of IMERYS Minerals Limited said: "Having managed the administration of the pension scheme in-house for so long it was a very big step for us to outsource it. We, therefore, wanted to find a supplier that had the skills and commitment to support the company through this period of significant change. Trafalgar House devoted time to meeting with our team through a series of onsite knowledge transfer sessions and have carefully guided us through every stage of the transition process. We look forward to working with them to continue to develop the service to bring online new developments that will benefit our members."

Daniel Taylor, Client Director at Trafalgar House, said: "All parties invested a great deal of time and effort in the transition process, as it demanded the concurrent consolidation of data and operations from two separate sources. The scheme had also benefited from a history of stable, high quality member care, so it was essential that we did everything possible to reassure members whilst providing a seamless transfer of operations."
