Former Origen duo Stephen Greenstreet and Rob Tinsley are to head a new at-retirement business for Punter Southall.
The new Aspire division will provide non-advised and advised solutions to individuals, corporates and strategic partners. It will also offer pre-retirement consultancy services and launches later this year.
Greenstreet was managing director at Origen and Tinsley was head of retirement strategy. Greenstreet says: “There are several broking platforms but Aspire will deliver additional vital communication and guidance in the run-up to retirement, helping individuals fully understand and appreciate the importance of using the open market option and making the right decisions.”
Punter Southall Financial Management managing director John Hamilton-Hunt says: “There is demand for the blend of skills and background we can offer. We are here to help people make the right decisions at retirement and bringing in the experience of Stephen and Rob will help to develop Aspire into a market-leading presence.”
Worldwide Financial Planning IFA Nick McBreen says: “The link between the Aspire proposition and Punter Southall will make this a very attractive proposition for advisers.”
