Scottish Equitable goes on the pensions campaign trail

Scottish Equitable is launching a campaign to help IFAs develop their pension business in the run up to stakeholder.


To support the campaign the life office has produced a business development pack containing promotional items, printed sales aids and a selection of approach letters for IFAs to use to attract new business from new and existing clients.


Head of marketing Ken Hogg says: “I believe that those providers who will be best placed in the stakeholder market are those who are willing to provide IFAs with the highest level of support at a local branch level in terms of technical support, training, technology, and marketing material.”
