Hargreaves Lansdown has chosen Origo to connect to the central digital architecture of the pensions dashboard and respond to citizens’ data requests.

Origo Dashboard Connector was designed to enable pension providers and administrators to connect to the pension dashboard’s core architecture easily, securely and cost-effectively. 

Origo offers providers, schemes and third party administrators two options to connect to the dashboard and the way they deliver data in response to citizens’ requests.

Option one securely links a pension provider to the pensions dashboard central digital architecture, with the provider undertaking all other parts of the request fulfilment process. 


Option two is a full-service package, which completely fulfils a citizen’s request for their pensions data, conforming to legislative obligations. Hargreaves Lansdown will be using the full-service option. 

Jack Williams, Head of Pensions and Retirement at Hargreaves Lansdown says: “The Pensions Dashboard is an enormous opportunity to help people engage with their retirement by enabling them to see all their pensions in one place. Having one overarching view informs better decision making in the run up to retirement and has the ability to really boost people’s financial resilience.

“It’s an ambitious project and it’s important to be well prepared. After considering all the options we believe partnering with Origo is the most efficient way for us to connect to the dashboard. We look forward to working with them over the coming months as we move towards our staging date.” 


Anthony Rafferty, CEO, Origo says: “We are delighted Hargreaves Lansdown has chosen Origo Dashboard Connector to enable their connection to the core digital architecture of the pensions dashboard.

“Starting in August 2023 all pension providers will be compelled to connect to the ecosystem by law, going live in line with set staging dates. We built Origo Dashboard Connector using our expertise and experience in the market, with a clear objective to give providers options which will enable them to connect to the pensions dashboard in the way that best suits their business model.”
