Answers to pension questions

Alliance Trust Savings is offering a direct link to its adviser centre which has pension planning tools, product factsheets and access to its technical pension team’s expertise.

Advisers can submit questions and to get a response from one of Alliance Trust’s pension experts. The most commonly asked questions will be posted online for other members to view.

The new site enables advisers to create full Sipp illustrations for new and existing clients for both contributions and transfers with its pension illustration service tool.

This allows advisers to save and print illustrations as well as to retrieve and edit previously created illustrations.

Members can view and download video presentations of Alliance Trust’s recent adviser roadshows, which looked at the global economy, technical pension planning and how to use tax benefits ahead of the changes in regulations.

Managing director of distribution Kelly O’Donnell says: “With a technical team in place and an increasing number of questions and answers posted online, advisers can tap into our expertise and make full use of our specialist understanding.”
