Winterthur Life UK is in the top 10 largest providers of pensions in the United Kingdom. They have three main offices at Basingstoke (their headquarters), Hampshire and Manchester and have approximately 800 employees.

Product Services and Speciality Products

Their special ‘The One from Winterthur’ is a flexible pension plan which is designed for the long term whilst keeping in mind your changing needs. This plan allows you to either make regular contributions or else you can add to your fund whenever you wish. You can transfer from an occupational pension scheme to a Section 32 but you would be giving up all your benefits including those which are guaranteed. The Section 32 is convenient however insofar as it doesn’t force you to make minimum contributions.

The Executive Pension is set up by your employer and each employee who joins is issued with a policy. The employee can then choose which particular Winterthur funds to invest in with the help of their financial advisor. Their Group Pension Plan allows you, your employer, a third party and HMRC to make contributions into a fund in your name. It is also possible to transfer benefits from a pension from a previous employment. In their stakeholder scheme, you buy units in investment schemes of your choice from the contributions to the fund made by you and your employer amongst other contributors. Investors must be careful to note that none of these pension schemes are guaranteed and their value may in fact fall over the course of time.
