National Pension Trust (NPT), the defined contribution (DC) master trust offering from UK specialist Xafinity Group, has appointed two new members to its senior team.

Andy Flynn and Jonathan Hight-Warburton have joined with immediate effect to strengthen the team and continue to build Xafinity’s DC pensions offering. Xafinity also provides a range of other services, including pensions actuarial, consulting, investment and administration services.

Hight-Warburton joins as bid manager from Xerox, where he was senior commercial contracts executive. He previously worked at Buck Consultants.

Dave Hodges, head of NPT at Xafinity. said: “The pensions industry has changed beyond recognition over the past few decades. Firms wanting to offer the full range of freedom and choice are looking to partner with those that can provide high levels of governance, and can reduce costs. The National Pension Trust is an ideal solution for those looking to consolidate pension schemes or just offer the right solution for members.”

“In line with our growth strategy, we have continued to grow the team and welcome Jonathan and Andy to the NPT team. They bring years of experience and will help us to deliver our leading service and product offering to more firms and their members.”

Flynn added that member education, engagement and empowerment are “vital” in today’s pension world to help people understand and achieve the outcome they’re seeking. “I look forward to continuing to develop NPT’s strategy to offer a market leading package to firms and their members.”

Hight-Warbuton said: “Clients need help and guidance on what to offer their members in the most cost effective manner. I look forward to working with NPT as the demand for leading master trust solutions continues to grow.”
