About Us

BCF Pension Trust is the trustee body set up to run the BCF Pension Scheme, a low cost scheme launched in 2007 designed to offer benefits in retirement for its members.

How is BCF run?

BCF is run by 5 Trustee Directors that are responsible to determine the Scheme’s strategic direction and objectives. The Trustees have been chosen for their range of experience, skills and industry knowledge.

The 5 Trustees are:
Stuart Barnes
Tim Barter
Lawrence Buckley (Chair of Trustees)
Kevin Dunlop
Howard Thorstensen

The day to day running of BCF is the responsibility of the Scheme's administrators, HS Administrative Services Ltd, who are a specialist third party administrator who have been administering pension schemes for over 30 years.

BCF Pension Trust also appoints professional investment advisers, legal advisers, auditors and actuaries to ensure compliance in all areas.


Who regulates BCF?

BCF is a trust-based, registered scheme regulated by The Pensions Regulator (TPR). TPR is a government-empowered body whose main duties include protecting the benefits of pension scheme members and promoting good scheme administration.

BCF – A quality scheme

TPR has published a Code of Practice, Regulatory Guidance and a set of Quality Features for pension schemes. At BCF we measure our performance against these features to ensure we offer the best possible service and outcomes for our members.

BCF was one of the first pension schemes in the country to receive Master Trust Assurance, having been independently verified to be operating in accordance with TPR's quality features.

On 1st October 2019 BCF was granted Master Trust Authorisation by the Pensions Regulator, after sucessfully passing a series of rigorous criteria to prove the Scheme was well run.
