Rowanmoor Group (Rowanmoor) today starts a new chapter as a standalone pension provider, following the acquisition of Embark Group by Lloyds Banking Group.
Rowanmoor has long been at the forefront of the member-directed pensions industry, and is one of the UK’s leading independent bespoke pension providers. Businesses within Rowanmoor have been established in the pensions market for more than 15 years and have a long history of working closely with advisers, clients, trustees, and intermediary partners.
Rowanmoor’s in-house expertise spans all aspects of pension provision, scheme administration, pensions technical, actuarial, and investment due diligence. In 2021, Rowanmoor received both a Defaqto and a Moneyfacts 5-star rating for SSAS, and was Commended in the Best SSAS Provider Category at the ILP Moneyfacts Awards.
As Rowanmoor continues to operate as normal this change will not affect existing members’ schemes.
Paul Downing, CEO, Rowanmoor commented: “We are excited for this new chapter in our history having returned to being an independent business. With the full support of our shareholders, we look forward to building on our 15-year history of providing a high quality service to clients with bespoke and complex pension needs.”
