UK - Consulting actuaries Punter Southall has today announced the launch of a specialist unit dedicated to retirement planning for senior executives.
The team will be headed up by senior consultant Linda Clark.
The new unit will strengthen Punter Southall’s administration, consultancy and actuarial expertise on Self Invested Personal Pensions (SIPPs) and Small Self Administered Schemes (SSASs), with investment services being provided in conjunction with PSFM, the group’s financial management arm.
Clark is based in Punter Southall’s Edinburgh office and is responsible for building up this team.
She said: SIPPs and SSASs are particularly attractive to individuals such as directors who want to have a flexible pension plan which is separate to the company scheme. By running a joint unit, we can advise clients who wish to make best use of the advantages of SIPPs and SSASs, since our team has extensive expertise in both areas.”
Ex-BHS owner Dominic Chappell has been ordered to pay a total of £87,000 in fines and court costs after he was found guilty of failing to provide The Pensions Regulator (TPR) with information.
The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has said it while believes in the benefits of consolidating defined benefit (DB) schemes, there are significant issues to overcome.
There is just one week left to register to enter the Workplace Savings and Benefits Awards 2018.
