Pensions firm Portafina makes FT Future 100 list

By Chris Britcher

A firm specialising in pensions has made it into a prestigious top 100 list.

Rochester-based Portafina made the Financial Times' Future 100 list which ranks firms in the UK for their impact within the financial industry and wider society.

The firm, which started life as Portal Financial in 2009, now looks after more than 14,000 clients across the UK.

To make the FT list it had to make a positive impact via their environmental, social and governance (ESG) policies, or promoting diversity, or disrupting their industry.

The expert panel, led by FT journalists, were impressed with Portafina's diversity at all levels and its technology driven approach.

Jamie Smith-Thompson, managing director of Portafina, said: "Pensions are complicated, so we have always made it clear for people to know their options by using simple, easy to understand language and we have made sure to employ the right people to adopt this approach.

“As a result of this, we have a great gender mix of employees, with 64% being women. We also actively give young Medway people the opportunity to develop with the company, helping them to make a great start on their careers whilst ensuring the business continues to evolve within the financial industry.”
