New Multi-Platform product launch

London & Colonial is delighted to announce the launch of two new innovative products, the Multi-Platform SIPP and the Multi-Platform Open Annuity.

Retaining many of the outstanding features already associated with their extremely successful SIPP and Flexible Annuity products, these brand new entry level ‘platform’ versions will offer clients exceptional value for money through lower fees and investment opportunities across a range of carefully selected platforms.

As all investment options are contained within the same wrapper, the cost of transfer is removed, resulting in no additional transfer or set up fees for the client and less administration for the IFA.

The independent pensions company has teamed up with a panel of carefully selected platform providers to launch a series of unbundled pension wrappers that will span onshore and offshore from the accumulation to decumulation phase.

Adam Wrench Head of Product & Business Development said “In partnership with an ever increasing panel of platform providers we have been able to unbundle the pension wrapper administration from the Platform investment administration.

The result is a powerful proposition that can flex according to the client’s changing circumstances. We offer a choice of platform providers as well as off-platform flexibility both onshore and offshore. We will be able to offer a consolidated view of all clients across Multi-Platforms whether SIPP, Flexible Annuity or QROPS to QNUPS.”
