Rathbone takes Sipp shows on the road

Rathbone Investment Management is set for a whistle-stop UK tour promoting the benefits of self-invested personal pensions.

The seminars aim to examine the advantages to IFAs and their clients of managing pensions as part of an overall investment portfolio rather than separately.

They will focus on income drawdown, property purchase and investment portfolios.

The tour starts in Winchester on May 9 followed by dates in Edinburgh, Bowness, Manchester, Maidstone, London, Gatwick and Brighton.

Senior pensions consultant Julia Harrington says: “Taking a unified approach to pension and investment planning allows greater control over an individual&#39s investment strategy and the flexibility to adapt with changing circumstances.”
