Chichester, West Sussex (PRWEB UK) 11 December 2013
Following the Financial Services Consumer Panel’s announcement on Annuities: Time for Regulatory Reform, Alison Richards, PayingTooMuch’s Head of Annuities commented:
“We welcome the FSC’s annuity review and recommendations for improvements to the sales process as we feel annuitants are often offered a raw deal with rollover terms from their existing pension provider, despite the introduction of the ABI code of conduct.
“We don’t however feel that a transparent, whole of market non-advised service needs to also offer advice, as long as this option is clearly signposted if the annuitant requires it. Given the costs involved in providing advice it is unlikely that customers with smaller pot sizes will want to pay the costs of having received advice and would rather stick to receiving information and making their own mind up.
“At PayingTooMuch.com we guide our customers through the journey without jargon, offering whole of market rates for comparison and deep underwriting for enhanced terms. We treat every case with the same care regardless of pot size and explain the process clearly and without any sales pressure.”
