Fairs IFA in link-up with Selectapension

Fairs IFA Software has signed a partnership with online pension calculation provider Selectapension.

The deal aims to provide advisers with a full set of retirement planning calculation tools from within the Fairs IFA Manager product. Fairs says it is the first back-office IFA product to offer extensive retirement planning calculations.

It says the Selectapension tool allows advisers to perform all major pension calculations in preparation for A-Day, including checking annuity levels, monitoring lifetime allowance limits and comparing plans and growth rates between pension providers.

The partnership was launched at the Money Marketing Live event at the G-Mex Manchester this week.

Fairs managing director Gary Sawyer says: “Selectapension does the maths while Fairs deals with the admin and compliance. The integration delivers quick and high-level client service and eradicates the risk of manual data entry errors.”

Selectapension managing director Andy McCabe says: “This makes it possible for advisers to cover every angle of their clients’ retirement needs.”
