We go back a long way! Starting off as the pensions office for the British Rail pension scheme back in 1965, we have seen many changes along our journey so far. 

We have been through the privatisation of the railways in 1993; one day we were supporting one scheme as an in-house team; and the next we were looking after a large number of employers and sections as a business in our own right.

As we progressed as a business, the number of clients we supported grew too (and still is growing, we are happy to say) and we can proudly tell you that we now look after the needs of over 500,000 pension scheme members across a variety of schemes and industries.

RPMI still has the original strong links to our rail heritage; we look after all 350,000 members that make up the Railways Pension Scheme through the work we do with its 100-plus employers, and have great support from the Trustee.

In 2011, we further strengthened our position in the administration market, buying Electricity Pension Administration Limited (EPAL) from EOn. With a shared passion and commitment to excellence, the company - now known as RPMI Coventry - was a natural choice for us.

Where we are now is a long way from where we started out, and we looking forward to another 50 great years!
