According to The Platforum, in the last quarter of 2012, the workplace savings platform market was valued at £1 billion, with 218 employers having adopted a platform, and 168,000 employees using one.

Uptake and engagement remain key challenges with take up of corporate individual savings accounts (Isas) still typically between 2.5% and 7.5% of employees.

Despite these challenges, the 10 providers in the market report positive pipelines and in last week’s analyst briefing, Hargreaves Lansdown reported £222 million in Corporate Vantage, an increase of 67% over the last three m.

Nearly half (47%) of those employers adopting a workplace savings platform have closed an existing defined benefit (DB) or defined contribution (DC) pension scheme as they make the transition.

Although a small market today, the pipeline of future business does point to growth. As more employers take a look, feedback from existing customers is vital.

This is partly why The Platforum is asking all employers and advisers with experience of a workplace platform to tell us which one you think is the best.
