On 3 May 2016, Aegon announced an agreement to acquire BlackRock’s UK defined contribution (DC) platform and administration business.
Mobius Life employs the services of BlackRock’s administration business to provide member administration services for your pension scheme, hence this notification.
There is no need to take any action as all services continue as before. Please note the Pension Portal will continue to reflect a BlackRock logo and we don’t expect this to change until 2017.
We will continue to inform you of any future changes you may experience when logging on to the Pension Portal.
All existing services and details remain the same and all systems, telephone numbers remain unaltered.
If you wish to speak to someone regarding this matter please call our contact centre on 01733 353 405.
