About Us

Worcester Pensions began trading in 2020, although the business has been established for over 20 years. We were part of the McCarthy Taylor stable of businesses. When our founder sold McCarthy Taylor, the IFA and discretionary investment manager, the remaining services were divided into their constituent parts and Worcester Pensions was formed

How we can help


Worcester Pensions will lead the process to set up a registered and compliant scheme.


If you are unhappy with the service you are receiving from your current provider, we can manage the transfer process to Worcester Pensions.


Once you have established a Worcester Pensions SSAS, we will assist the member trustees to remain compliant throughout it’s life, for example, providing regular valuations, annual accounts and annual regulator submissions.


Our wealth of experience allows us to advise member trustees with regards to the nature of investments, latest tax rules, regulatory requirements and restrictions.
