Listen to our latest Pensions Conjecture debate on Corporate Wraps and Platforms.
Corporate wraps or platforms offer an alternative to traditional company pension schemes - offering employees a menu of savings products such as individual savings accounts (ISAs), funds and shares alongside sharesave schemes and more traditional pension schemes such as self-invested personal pensions (SIPPs) and group personal pensions (GPPs) - all integrated via one single online account.
These wraps or platforms can give employees greater flexibility around investment and pension products - allowing them to switch between tax wrappers as their needs change.
The Corporate Wraps and Platforms panel includes:
Paul Bucksey - Head of New Business Development, Friends Life
Jamie Jenkins - Head of Corporate Strategy & Propositions, Standard Life
Stephen Lefley - Head of Corporate Distribution, Zurich Corporate Pensions
Tenders for first-time fiduciary management mandates will be mandatory, must be conducted on a closed basis, and will apply to any mandate for over 20% of a scheme's assets, the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) has confirmed.
