ABOUT THE Retirement quality mark

The RQM has been developed by the Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association (PLSA)  as a completely independent accreditation of individual in-retirement products.
Our aim is simple; to support consumers in making an informed decision, and to promote the development of a robust at-retirement market that operates in the interests of savers. We are setting the standard of what 'good' looks like.

RQM creates transparency for savers by:

  • Ensuring products are well designed and appropriately governed;
  • Providing an independent assessment of the quality of the product, the product governance and the communication with members;
  • Acting as an empowering tool to help consumers make informed decisions; and
  • Providing strong industry governance for products so that they operate in the customers' best interests, beyond the point of sale;
