We know that recent circumstances have led many businesses to take stock and review how they operate; and to ensure that they have the right support to run a sustainable business. That’s why our enhanced regulatory support in key areas, including DB transfers and suitability of advice, includes a host of complimentary support guides to help you and your business.
How we're helping firms with DB Transfers
DB Transfer advice continues to grow at a pace and providing a robust and reliable solution to clients, is proving difficult for many firms!
We are thrilled to start the new year with a fantastic addition to our DB Pension Transfer Bureau - Aviva Financial Advice. The Transfer Bureau offers an outsourcing solution to clients who are either unable to, or choose not to, operate in the defined benefits transfer market, but still want to meet the needs of their clients in this area. We are therefore delighted to welcome Aviva Financial Advice to the panel, alongside our existing partners to expand our capacity and expertise.
Let's talk about the V word
We have seen the issues of vulnerability compounded over the past few months and no matter how long you’ve worked with some of your clients, it can often be difficult to broach the subject, and then knowing how to deal with it in the right way once identified.
With increasing attention from the regulator, and the need to adequately protect both you and your clients, it’s never been more important to have and follow vulnerable person policies and procedures. For this reason, we launched a whole vulnerability initiative, including a full hub continuing information and guidance, events and we have partnered with leading providers and charities to provide extended solutions.
