2022 is a big year for us. We’re celebrating 80 years of creating simple, financial products, that started in the construction industry. And now, we’ve changed our name, to People’s Partnership.  

Throughout those 80 years, people have been at the heart of everything we do, and that’s why our new name, People’s Partnership, better defines us as a different financial services business. As a business without shareholders, we reinvest our profits to help customers and achieve better financial outcomes for everyone.

We’re thrilled about our new name – but it is just the name that changes – not the company.

People’s Partnership will be the provider of The People’s Pension, helping over 6 million people build up their pension savings.

Our Chief Executive Officer, Patrick Heath-Lay says: “During 10 years of The People’s Pension, we’ve grown into a leading provider of workplace pensions and, as People’s Partnership, we will continue to develop and grow for the benefit of our customers, who have always been at the heart of what we do.

“As People’s Partnership, our mission will remain the same – We’ll use our profits to provide straightforward, accessible, trusted products and support that help people become financially stronger.”

Will the B&CE name disappear completely?

Our roots are construction based, so we’ll continue to offer some employee benefit products to that industry sector under the existing B&CE name, as well as The Charitable Trust.1
