Other recent contracts for Affinity include Greater Manchester Police and Devon County Council.
Affinity says it is planning to increase its adviser num- bers from 30 to 40 over the next year.
Business development director Chris Dragunas says finding advisers with the technical skills to provide “advice of the highest quality” and also the temperament and personality to empathise with people approaching retirement is crucial to Affinity’s success.
She says: “We are delighted to have been selected from a big number of applicants for this contract and we are looking forward to working with the Metropolitan Police Authority to ensure that its staff receive appropriate advice and guidance as they move to the next stage of their careers.
“These contracts further reinforce Affinity’s position as the biggest provider of retirement counselling services to the public sector and also increasingly to major private sector organisations.
“Our services have been developed over many years and fit well with the emerging government and regulatory focus on developing consumer financial capability.”
