Who has the PQM?
The PQM has been a great success and since its launch in September 2009 over 200 pension schemes have achieved either PQM or PQM PLUS standard. Over 400,000 employees are actively saving in these arrangements.
The schemes come from a variety of sectors, ranging from financial services and charities through to pharmaceuticals and engineering. Don't forget to look which employers in your sector already achieved either PQM or PQM PLUS.
The latest schemes to join the growing number of PQM holders are:
John Wiley & Sons GPP
Harwich Haven Authority Group Personal Pension Plan
Bank of America UK Pension Plan
In February 2013 we launched PQM READY - a standard for multi-employer schemes and master trusts. The schemes have to meet strict governance and communications standards. If an employer using one of the PQM READY schemes wishes to meet the PQM standards, all they need to do is to ensure adequate contributions are in place. Have a look which schemes have met the PQM READY standards so far.

We welcome the launch of the Pension Quality Mark especially as it recognises the need for employers to give clear information and support to their pension scheme members as they approach retirement.
