Joanne Segars, Chief Executive
The NAPF is the voice of workplace pensions in the UK. We speak for over 1,300 pension schemes that provide pensions for over 17 million people and have more than £900 billion of assets. We also have 400 members from businesses supporting the pensions sector.
We aim to help everyone get more out of their retirement savings. To do this we promote policies that add value for savers, challenge regulation where it adds more cost than benefit and spread best practice among our members.
We place members at the heart of everything we do
NAPF exists to serve our members’ needs. We work hard to ensure we stay in touch with our members and their concerns, including through the provision of valued services and policy solutions that help raise standards and improve understanding.
Our member profile is a key strength. We represent all types of scheme including defined benefit, defined contribution, group personal pensions and statutory schemes such as those in Local Government. Between them, our members:
Provide retirement income to nearly 16 million people
Operate almost 1,300 separate pension schemes
Have combined assets of nearly £900bn
Our membership also includes a wide range of over 400 providers of essential advice and services to the pensions sector. This includes accounting firms, solicitors, fund managers, consultants and actuaries.
In addition to our policy work we are also the leading provider of conferences, seminars, training, publications, education and information on pensions and retirement issues.
The NAPF is governed by a Board. Reporting to the Board is a Defined Benefit and a Defined Contribution Council
The Councils are the NAPF's main policy-making bodies and work closely with the NAPF executive. Each Council has a number of working groups or sub-committees, which contribute to the detail of NAPF's policy and lobbying work.
Details of current Board and Council members can be found in Who's who at NAPF.
