Salvus Master Trust has launched a product that will accept cash equivalent transfer values (CETVs) from a final salary scheme granted as part of a Pension Sharing Order (PSO).
The master trust provider - now owned by Cushon - said the launch follows increasing demand from trustees wishing to secure CETVs in an appropriate default provider.
Cushon managing director Troy Clutterbuck said: "Many schemes struggle to contact and connect with ex-spouses in this space and therefore our new offering will provide a suitable alternative. Obviously once established the ex-husband or wife can transfer out at a later date to another product."
CMS partner Neil Smith commented on the launch. He said: "This will be welcomed by pension scheme trustees as dealing with PSOs, especially with recalcitrant and uncommunicative ex-spouses, can be a major headache. Some schemes may also adopt this facility as a default for all their PSOs."
More than half of BlackRock’s flagship UK defined contribution (DC) default fund’s assets will be invested in ESG strategies by June 2021.
Graeme Bold says the right communications can improve both the level of savings and the outcomes for savers.
More than half of UK savers agree they are unable to save sufficiently to achieve the retirement they want, according to research by BlackRock.
Pension savers have held off from making changes to their pensions despite nearly half having been impacted by the pandemic, research finds.
