Bluefin joins management of cross-industry retirement body

Bluefin has joined the management board of the new retirement industry group set up by MGM Advantage, Living Time, LV=, Canada Life, Partnership Assurance and Hargreaves Lansdown.

Bluefin director David Tildesley will represent the firm in the industry group, which is designed to complement the Association of British Insurers.
