My name is Karen Blackwill-Davies and I co founded PensionAdmin with Paul Mattioli in 2009.I have been a SSAS administrator and Trustee for just short of 20 years. Paul is considerably older than me (he will not thank me for that) and has more than 45 years in the industry. He is an independent financial adviser and chartered accountant.

PensionAdmin was born in 2009 as we felt the industry was lacking in companies that didn’t work on a “call center” mentality.  A lot of people were paying way too much for a very average service and PensionAdmin works in the absolute opposite way to that.

We provide a service where clients are priority (over profits and company targets!) and they receive a 5 star personal service. We are a professional trustee and we provide smashing technical guidance for SSAS’s but we also focus very highly on customer service with a very personal touch.

We have 2 hats. One is our “we deal with clients directly” hat and the other is “we deal with professional contacts such as IFA’s, accountants and solicitors” hat. Both hats are well worn and we can tailor a service to fit individual needs. For IFA’s, we can white label a SSAS if needed and we already do this for a lot of our clients.

Now, most people think pensions are boring, too technical and complicated. We won’t argue with those points, as sometimes we agree with them.  Our opinion though is that if you employ the right administrator who translates jargon into something you can understand, you are onto a good start.

So…we want to help you with your SSAS, whether you already have one or would like a shiny new one. We want to make it an easy pleasure to save and retire using a SSAS in a way which doesn’t require an IQ of over 160 (that officially classes you as a “genius” by the way).

Our clients always speak to the same person who knows all about them and their scheme and they pay fixed charges for a quick, complete service. I am very proud to say we have never lost a single client since we began and all of our clients have come from word of mouth and recommendations. We have a lovely team of administrators waiting to help you so please get in touch.

We also have a brochure which tells you all about us and what we do in more detail so click here to read it.

Finally, we don’t like to blow our own trumpet but here are a few testimonial’s from some of our clients so you can see what people think about us:

  Leigh Mackey – Inspire Insurance Services Ltd

I became a client of PensionAdmin through a recommendation by my financial adviser. They are very personable and always available to talk about any questions I have. Their service is efficient and they always update me with changes to legislation in terms I can understand. They are always happy to come to our offices for regular meetings and I would definitely recommend them.

  Nim Balakrishnan – IFA at Clarkson Wayman Ball Ltd

I am an independent financial adviser and started to use PensionAdmin around 4 years ago. They are my ‘go to’ SSAS administrator as the service they provide is second to none and their charges clear and competitive. I am always kept updated with what is happening with our mutual clients and they are always on hand to speak to about any queries we have. I also like the fact that they always attend trustee meetings with us, which is something I have never been offered from a professional trustee company. I would give them 5 star for service and technical knowledge.

 David Harris at Pyrotect Ltd

Friendly and totally reliable. Always on hand to help and are very quick with anything we ask for help with!


Mike  Adams – Retired and enjoying life!

I have been a client of PensionAdmin for some five and half years. They have been invaluable in ensuring that my pension fund always complies with the ever changing pension regulations. In addition,they have very efficiently managed my fund in a most friendly and approachable manner. Highly recommended!
