Pendragon

Who We Are

Pendragon is a specialist information provider dedicated to supplying legal and regulatory information to the pensions industry through its unique service, Perspective.

Pendragon has developed Perspective with the help of key professionals from the pensions industry, who helped us to understand how they work and what they want. Pendragon is a publishing company for the UK pensions industry designed and conceived by the industry.

Subscribers include all leading pension law firms, benefit consultants and consulting actuaries, Government departments, trade organisations, regulatory bodies, insurance companies, product providers, pension administrators, pension trustees and a number of the major pension funds.

In the summer of 2016, Pendragon acquired The Guide for Pension Trustees, a practical and reliable service for trustees, scheme managers and those responsible for pensions at companies. Kevin Le Grand is now the author of the book and we look forward having regular updates in the future.

The Art of Pensions competition is run by Pendragon and offers some light-hearted distraction to those working in the pensions industry. Pendragon is a Wilmington Publishing & Information Ltd business — a dynamic specialist provider of business information across a variety of industry sectors.

The annual competition, which began in 2003, is open to all pensions professionals who are invited to submit an illustration or comment on the subject of pensions on a postcard. Each year the entries are exhibited online and at the Professional Pensions Show with members of the industry voting for their favorites.
