Novia wrap for offshore pension trust

Novia is providing the investment platform for a new overseas pension trust.

The international retirement benefit scheme from provider s615(6) Limited enables employees who work for UK companies but have duties abroad to invest their pension via a trust, operating within the UK’s s615(6) pension legislation.

Novia says the partnership will offer investors a broad range of investment options, an efficient administration platform and a gross general investment account product wrapper where interest and fixed-income distributions can be paid gross without onerous paperwork to reclaim tax.

s615(6) Limited chief executive Gary Draper explains: “All employer contributions attract tax relief against UK corporation tax, there are generous contribution levels, all monies can be taken out 100 per cent tax-free and by using the Novia wrap, individuals and their advisers can select their own investment profile.”

Novia chief executive Bill Vasilieff says: “By using the s615(6) trust and the Novia wrap administration service, advisers can provide a really powerful solution to pension provision for offshore employees.”

Vive la revolution

In his speech at the Association of British Insurers 2009 conference earlier this month, the FSA’s Lord Turner said he saw no need for the regulatory revolution in the banking industry to be extended across other sectors of the financial services. However, I believe we must embrace a revolutionary mindset if we are to tackle the long-standing structural issues he acknowledged as characterising our industry.

Panel wants focus to help consumers

The Financial Services Consumer Panel has called for the FSA to publish information on firms’ performance and take over regulation of consumer credit from the Office of Fair Trading.
