The employees at Metropolitan Thames Valley have been rolled into a single defined contribution (DC) scheme within the Aviva Master Trust solution.
Metropolitan, headquartered in North London, is one of the nation's largest housing association trusts and formed in 2018 after the merger of Metropolitan Housing Trust and Thames Valley Housing Association.
The £548,000 procurement process for the association, which manages close to 40,000 homes, saw five tender applications received.
Metropolitan said it has looked for a DC arrangement that would allow for existing DC benefits invested in the Social Housing Pension Scheme to be rolled over into the new solution.
The contract with Aviva was agreed on 7 July.
