Cartwright Stepping Stones

Our History:Thirty years and counting...

Cartwright was established in 1986 to fill a gap in the market by providing specialist actuarial and pension services to small and medium sized defined benefit and hybrid schemes.

Founded by Ian Cartwright, who as Chairman continues to be fully involved in the business, the company adopted a ‘pioneering’ approach from the outset and that same spirit remains today with the company continually seeking new and innovative ways to improve systems and methodologies.

Originally located in Godalming, Surrey, Cartwright operates nationwide from two offices located in Farnborough and Chelmsford.

The growth of the company has generally been achieved through organic expansion with two strategic acquisitions made to strengthen key areas of the business. The acquisition of Barnes & Sherwood Limited in 2006 saw the first administration office open in Farnborough while the second acquisition of Gallagher Benefits Consulting, a pension based trust business, saw the second administration office open in Chelmsford in 2013.

Today, Cartwright has a strong, highly experienced and expert team of 100 staff members and the company is owned by the employees. Four core teams; actuarial, pensions administration, pensions management and investment consulting, all work together seamlessly to provide truly bespoke solutions for each customer.


Ever since you took over responsibility for our pension fund, I have been most impressed by your efficiency and presentation. I congratulate you. Queen Alexandra Hospital
