Paraplanning

If you want us to take care of all your paraplanning needs, from researching the market and chasing providers for information, to writing the suitability reports on a regular basis, we can do that for you.  Or, if you just want us to undertake one aspect of the paraplanning function for you, we can do that too.

Whilst we offer support for all products, we specialise in Defined Benefits Transfers, Drawdown and Pension Switching.  In the current climate of Pensions Freedom, with more and more clients demanding access to their pension funds, it’s of paramount importance to ensure your recommendations are clearly evidenced as suitable and will stand up to scrutiny – not just now but in the future when the inevitable past business review of this type of work becomes a reality.

Perhaps you’re unfamiliar with the Drawdown market or inexperienced with Defined Benefits Transfers and would like to offer these services to your clients?  We can help you to get comfortable with the rules and offer you reassurance that you’re getting it right.

We can do as little or as much work as you like; whether you’ve hit a busy part of your calendar and simply want us to take some of your workload for the next few weeks or you want us to take care of all your paraplanning needs on a regular basis.

By following a methodical process we will create your personalised suitability report, which will detail all the essential information; thereby providing your client with a clear record of your recommendations and the reasons why they’re suitable.

If you’re part of a Network or have some other compliance function with their own standards, we will work to ensure we understand their specific requirements; in so doing ensuring the reports we produce for you pass first time.

We pride ourselves on getting to know our clients to ensure the Suitability Reports we produce on your behalf are written exactly the way you’d like, ensuring we match your style, professional relationship with your client, and language you prefer.
