L&G offers stakeholder packs tooaid advisers

Legal & General has created two stakeholder inform-

ation packs to help financial advisers in discussions with employers.

The packs are the first stage of a major L&G marketing drive in the run-up to the launch of stakeholder in April 2001.

L&G says it is responding to IFA demand for material which keeps them up to date with the latest stakeholder developments which they can pass on to their employer clients.

The packs feature an employers&#39 guide to stakeholder pensions, a guide to payroll and admin as well as ideas on how employers can promote their pension scheme

to employees.

They will be followed with CD-Roms and videos in the coming months.
