“A competitive Employee Benefit Program is key for recruitment and retention of quality employees”

About us

Atwood Benefits UK Ltd (formerly F&L Financial Services Ltd) have been operating since 2005 and specialise in the provision of compliant Workplace Pension and Employee Benefit Programs. We work with both UK and international businesses looking to outsource their Employee Benefits function and provides direct corporate and employee support as required. 

Atwood Benefits UK Ltd is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and operate on a ‘whole of market’ basis. This allows us to research the entire market on behalf of our corporate clients before making recommendation for the most suitable, compliant and cost-effective Pension and Benefits Program for their employees.

A significant number of our clients are headquartered overseas (with many in North America) and we are typically tasked with reviewing their domestic benefits in order the UK program can be themed in line but adapted where necessary to meet local expectation and requirements. 

We manage all aspects of the Employee Benefits cycle from design, through implementation, monthly administration and annual review by always being the first point of contact for the employer and at the same time providing a ‘real time’ solution for the UK employees.

Our Charities

Atwood Benefits UK Ltd is proud to support Communigrow and BTRC (Brain Tumour Research Campaign).

Our Services

International and UK companies need to consider what is appropriate locally, taking into account both employee and market expectations along with legislative requirements. Not all industries have the same expectations or requirements.

When making recommendation for international businesses we always consider the domestic program of the parent company and then theme the UK plan with this in mind but taking into account what is customary (and required) in the UK.

In summary, we effectively become our corporate clients outsourced Employee Benefits Department.
