Let's go!

Who we are

SPP is the representative body for a wide range of providers of advice and services to pension schemes, trustees and employers. Our work harnesses the expertise of our membership, striving for a positive impact on pension scheme members, the pensions industry and its stakeholders.

The breadth of our membership profile is a unique strength for the SPP and includes actuaries, lawyers, investment managers, administrators, professional trustees, covenant assessors, consultants and specialists.

We were founded in 1958, as the Society of Pension Consultants, bringing together professionals to positively influence pension policy, support the development of legislation and provide members with access to technical information and insight into key industry policy debates.

In 2014, we renamed as The Society of Pension Professionals, broadening the range of professionals engaged in membership.

SPP is a company limited by guarantee.

Vision, Mission and Values

SPP’s culture, underpinning our vision, is defined by:

Focusing on our membership, responding with agility to their needs

Breadth of collaboration, inclusive of, and accessible to, all

What our members say

“If offered the opportunity to be an SPP member, grab it!


“A valuable benefit from such a broad church as the SPP is to be able to learn from people who occupy different niches and roles in the pensions industry as ourselves.”


“The SPP gives all members access to a fantastic range of events popular with pension professionals of all levels. The networking and CPD opportunities are great.”


“From the Pension Protection Fund’s point of view it’s really important that the society is there to help engage with their members to  develop good advice for schemes, good advice for trustees and really support them and their members in being able to deliver a good pensions future for all.”
