Origo is a not-for-profit, fintech company dedicated to improving outcomes for members by transforming the financial services industry’s operating efficiencies. By bringing together different industry organisations and groups in a non-competitive environment, we identify and address cost and efficiency issues.

Thanks to our Options Transfers service, pensions transfer times have dramatically reduced from c.50 working days to an average 11 calendar days, providing smooth, safe and faster transfers for members.

The new Options Bulk Transfers service delivers faster, safer transfers for the bulk movement of members and schemes by ensuring that throughout the process all data remains agreed. All changes and communications are visible, recorded and fully auditable in the Options Transfer service, enabling performance monitoring and reporting, and most importantly an improved service for your members.

Origo is responsible for a range of industry solutions from prototyping and developing pensions dashboard technology, legal frameworks, online and security services as well as standards.
