Former L&G annuities boss Tim Gosden returns to MGM

MGM Advantage has recruited former Legal & General annuities boss Tim Gosden to develop and market the provider’s post April retirement proposition. 

Last month, Money Marketing revealed Gosden had left L&G as part of a restructuring exercise. L&G pensions strategy director Adrian Boulding has also left the company.

MGM product and marketing director Peter Carter says: “Without doubt the coming year will be one of the most exciting times to be working for a company focussed on helping advisers and their clients in the retirement market.

“To attract someone of Tim’s experience at such a crucial time is a real coup for us.”

Having started his career at MGM in 1988, Gosden rose to become planning and propositions manager before departing for a role as head of product development for L&G’s retirement savings business in December 2004.

He took on his role as director of strategy for individual retirement solutions in July 2012.

Gosden says: “Having started my career in financial services at MGM, it feels right to be returning at a time when the market is witnessing significant change.

“The company has a clear strategy and compelling plans for product development and I look forward to working with colleagues to support advisers and their clients.”

Boulding’s exit is the […]

Tax-free gains? That can’t be right, can it?

When he was Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne made several changes to the way in which income is taxed. Personal allowances were increased significantly above the rate of inflation; a starting rate band was introduced for savings income and, with effect from 6 April 2015, this was assessed at 0 per cent.
