With the ongoing success of their Multi-Platform offerings including SIPP, Open Annuity, and QROPS, London & Colonial have announced the appointment of Creechurch Capital Limited to their Discretionary Fund Manager panel.
Adam Wrench, Head of Product & Business Development at London & Colonial, said:
"Whilst the uptake of our Multi-Platform product offerings continues to go from strength to strength, it is essential that all of the underlying investments are properly managed.
Whereas many clients may be happy to do this, for those who have neither the time nor the desire to get involved with the day to day running of their fund the services of a Discretionary Fund Manager (DFM) is the obvious solution, and so we are extremely pleased to be able to announce the recent addition of Creechurch Capital to our existing choice of DFMs. Unlike other DFMs Creechurch has a UK and International presence, which is especially crucial for those of our clients opting for an offshore pension wrapper such as QROPS.
Today’s investors are continually presented with a whole array of investment options, so the ability to create an investment strategy, individually tailored for each client and utilising the extensive specialist expertise of Creechurch, should not only assist with the preservation of capital, but increase the chances of the returns required to fulfil their financial aspirations being achieved."
Stewart Quayle, Business Development Manager at Creechurch Capital Limited, said:
“We are delighted to be working with London & Colonial who have an enviable reputation for producing innovative and creative retirement solutions such as their award winning SIPP, and their Open Annuity the Multi-Platform versions of which were launched towards the end of 2012.
By offering their clients an excellent choice of investment opportunities across a selection of some of the best Platforms available within the market place today, London & Colonial have created a range of affordable products especially suited to those investors positioned more towards the beginning of their financial journey; and we are pleased to have been asked to contribute our specialist expertise to further enhance these already impressive investment propositions.”
Creechurch Capital’s services are currently available across the whole of the London & Colonial product range – including Open Annuity, QROPS, SIPPs, and SSAS in addition to their Multi-Platform offerings.
