The pension freedom changes relate to all types of defined contribution scheme and so will affect members of personal and group personal pensions (GPPs), stakeholder pensions, self-invested personal pensions (SIPPs) and some additional voluntary contribution (AVC) schemes.

Ceiron King did an amazing job setting up my insurance. He was meticulous to all details and made sure everything was individually tailor made to suit my circumstances. When I had queries he was able to take on board any issues and find solutions quickly. Pleasant, easy to talk to, engaging, personable chap who effortlessly made me feel that I'd found the right firm. Highly recommended.
