A Profile Pensions review will ensure you’re getting the very best return on the investment you’ve made
Pension reviews have a terrible reputation right now. You may have been bombarded by dozens of cold-callers offering a free pension review. And you’re right to be sceptical. Many people have been mis-sold pensions via this tactic. So many, that the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) is reviewing how to apply for compensation if you think you did receive bad advice.
But, ironically, this has increased the need for pension review services. More people than ever before are in need of legitimate, impartial pension guidance. So how can you ensure you’re getting the best advice?
There’s Pension Wise, which is a UK government-backed service to talk people through their pension options. So you can trust you’re getting impartial guidance from them.
But, they can only give guidance. They can’t comment on your current pension or recommend another pension. So if you’re looking for a pension review company… how about us? Here’s why:
Firstly, we are fully transparent and always strive to put our customers first. Just take a look at some of our third party customer reviews. Not everyone in the industry shares these types of reviews or has a rating like ours.
But there’s a third reason. When our founders set up Profile Pensions they spotted an opportunity. The industry was then running a switch and we’ll take a commission business. Profile wanted to do things differently – in a more fair and transparent way.
Our pension advisers are committed to making your no obligation pension as painless as possible in simple, jargon-free language.
Ok so a lot of companies offer a no obligation pension review service. And that’s what we offer. But it’s not the same. We put every effort into making your customer experience as positive as possible and we genuinely care about doing the best for you. More straightforward, less pressured, and more tailored to your unique requirements.
And if it’s not? Email Simon. He’s our chief marketing officer and is 110% dedicated to providing excellent customer service and makes sure everyone exactly delivers what we say we will.

I would recommend Profile to anyone thinking of taking out a pension review.

I was particularly impressed with how Profile fed back to me throughout. I have to say I was very happy with their service and how my adviser explained everything in a very straightforward way. He also didn’t put me under any pressure to make changes, so I felt comfortable and confident about trusting his recommendations when it came to transferring my pension.

Profile advised that I should switch my pension to LV because it had better long-term prospects. I decided to take their advice and move my pension and I’m glad that I did! Profits have climbed nicely since it was opened just a year ago. I’m very pleased!

The adviser gave me some of the information that I already knew and he supplemented that with current information about my pension performance, how that compared to the market, what the fees were and other plans and providers and what returns they were getting. I imagined that I’d be given a lot of facts of information, which I was, but in manageable chunks over the course of the call.

The yearly updates that I receive from Profile are excellent and understandable. The decision to transfer my pensions via Profile was one of the best decisions that I have made and I wish I had taken the steps years ago.
