Thorntons Investments awarded Pension Transfer Gold Standard
We are delighted to confirm that we have been awarded the Pension Transfer Gold Standard.
This is a voluntary code of good practice for safeguarded and defined benefit pension transfer advice, based around a set of principles. Firms which adopt and promote the Pension Transfer Gold Standard are committed to helping consumers find good advice which they can understand and be confident that they are dealing with a firm that is going beyond the minimum requirements when giving financial advice.
Barry Davidson, Head of Financial Planning, comments, “We are delighted to commit ourselves to the Pension Transfer Gold Standard. Our regulator, the Financial Conduct Authority, rightly continues to focus on advice given to consumers in this area and we firmly believe that the introduction of this standard by the Pensions Advice Taskforce through the Personal Finance Society is a positive step and will help consumers who are considering whether or not to consider exploring a transfer”.
