Emma Kenworthy
UK Pensions Specialist – Team Leader

Emma joined the Pension Transfer team at PTS in July 2013.  Originally from Leeds she gained her UK pensions experience working for several large administration companies in the UK as a Pensions Administration Team Leader.   She was responsible for a team of administrators carrying out the day to day administration of many defined benefit occupational pension schemes.  She was also responsible for training and assessing other pension administrators in the National Vocational Qualification in Pensions Administration.

Emma also spent time investigating clients entitlements following the Governments Review on the misselling of Personal Pensions. where many individuals were advised by insurance companies, Independent Financial Advisers and other intermediaries to transfer from or to opt out of their occupational pension schemes. Emma’s role was to investigate a clients employment history from the date of the misselling. This was great experience for PTS  who are able to locate current pension scheme entitlements for our clients who may have lost paperwork or are unsure of any pension entitlements in the UK or other previous countries of residence.
