Route Wealth Management, an IFA specialising in pension advice on A-Day issues, has been launched.
The firm is part of the Route Group, which already has four subsidiary companies – a tax and estate planning unit, an independent mortgage broker and a property acquisition service.
It is based in the City and says it has a big client base of high-net-worth clients with specialist financial planning needs.
The company will be providing general financial advice as well as fee-based solutions for A-Day issues in the run-up to April 2006, particularly for members of final-salary pension schemes.
Director Richard Admiraal says: “In the run-up to A-Day, we believe we are well positioned to offer a niche service both to our own clients and from third-party referrals in partnership with other IFAs who do not have the experience or expertise to advise their clients through the complexities that A-Day presents, particularly given the relatively short timescale.”
