More information about the awards

Why did we come up with the Best Buy Pension award?

It's downright crazy to make an already-dull topic even harder to stomach with relentless jargon, blasé customer service and antiquated website experiences. But the financial sector has a nasty habit of using mind-numbing terminology to describe pensions. This makes it harder for customers like you to compare your options, understand which pension is right for you, and make an informed choice before your put your cash away for retirement. In response to the above, we created the Boring Money Best Buy Pension award to honour the investment industry's cream of the crop. Think of this as an exclusive suite of pension providers who deliver consistently good value, transparent pricing, great website experiences, excellent customer service, and brand-spanking technology.

And how does this information help me?

We didn't just come up with these Best Buys to brag about how amazing all these pension providers are. No - these awards exist to help you - the customer - make better financial decisions and save smartly for your retirement. Whether you're planning on consolidating your pension, going for a DIY Self-Invested Personal Pension (SIPP), or just fancy switching to a new provider, we've done all that nitty gritty research and fiddly analysis so you don't have to. And as you navigate our website and compare pensions, do look out for these brands with the Best Buy Pension logos next to their name. We don't just hand these out to anyone: providers do have to earn them.
