UK - Edis Partnerships has been appointed administrator of the St Andrew's Group of Hospitals £70m defined benefit scheme.
The 1400-member “multi-site” pension scheme – which comprises three hospitals in North London, Basildon and its headquarters in Northampton – has chosen Edis to replace the incumbent third party administrator, FPS Group.
St Andrew’s Group finance director Nigel Blackham said: “In appointing new administrators, the trustees of the scheme were particularly looking for excellent service standards coupled with the ability of the provider to reflect St Andrew’s own caring approach to customer care.”
Blackham added: “Trustees felt that the Edis Partnerships’ administration services are best placed to meet these criteria. They have leading technology, first-rate staff and proven standards of service that, in the trustees view exceeded those of their competitors.”
Edis Partnership principal partner Mark Adamson said winning the St Andrew’s brief could not have been achieved without the “glowing testimony” of its existing administration clients.
He added: “Our clients such as Rentokil Initial are already receiving the high quality service, including three-day average turnaround times, that the trustees want for their members.”
