Appointment further strengthens Yorsipp’s presence in central belt pensions market
Yorsipp, specialist provider of bespoke SIPP, SSAS and "At Retirement" pension solutions, is delighted to announce the appointment of Technical & Compliance Manager Iain McCallum. Iain is a pensions expert with over two decades of experience in the financial services industry, having served in various capacities and financial institutions. With a particular focus on the SIPP and SSAS market, Iain has a great understanding of regulatory developments and best practices in the industry, ensuring Yorsipp complies with all legal and regulatory standards.
Yorsipp, established in 2006, is one of Scotland’s leading independent pensions solutions providers. A member of AMPS (the Association of Members-Directed Pension Schemes), the company provides a wide variety of investment and retirement income solution. With over a third of assets held in commercial property, Yorsipp’s expertise includes "in specie" property transfers, developments, split title and syndicated purchases, and has a particular focus on both SIPP and SSAS plans.
Managing Director Kirsty Gallagher comments: “As we start to see positive signs of the economy improving, with a mass COVID vaccination programme on the way as well as relief over a Brexit deal, 2021 is looking to be a year with a significant focus on planning for our futures. Saving for retirement has never been as important as now, and we are seeing lots of clients investing in commercial properties, predominantly because of the added advantage of being able to buy these through a pension product (like a SIPP or a SSAS). I am delighted to have Iain on board and look forward to working together– his appointment further strengthens our ability to offer flexible retirement solutions to our clients.”
Iain adds: “It is exciting to be joining a successful, independent and forward-thinking firm. What has refreshed me the most is that Yorsipp has aspirations to grow, whilst remaining true to its core values of personal service and always doing what they believe is right for their members and their advisers, whilst delivering flexible investment and retirement options at a competitive price. There are strong signs of investment and huge opportunities for those that want to take control of their future, and I am looking forward to being part of this and working with the Yorsipp team."
