The membership of the Group comprises accountants and managers of pension schemes, together with practitioners in the actuarial, accountancy and consultancy professions. It, therefore, represents a very broad cross-section of pensions expertise.

Welcome to the PRAG website

Pensions Research Accountants Group (“PRAG”) is a leading independent industry body working for the development of occupational pensions schemes, with focus on financial reporting and internal control. PRAG is a body of accountants and professionals working in the pensions industry.
