Default Pensions: transferring

Can anyone recommend any pension companies to transfer my UK pension to. My current pension is with Clerical Medical and due to recent redundancy, I am no longer paying into it.

Thanks

I Transferred mine to AMP but wouldn't have a clue if it was best or not.

I will keep my pension in Holland and have it paid out to me from Holland to Australia when I'm 65. Since the pension is indexed it will not loose its value.

I know that it can be tricky to have your pension transferred. I believe you must have the consent of both the UK and Australia tax organisation to have it transfered, otherwise you might be ending up paying a lot on taxes and transferal costs.
