To whom it may concern,
Since deciding to retire early in 2015, Tisco (mainly in the guise of Mike Denton with support from James Smith) have been of great assistance in helping me to decide what to do with the pension fund that I had with in the form of two GPP’s and a Section 32 with Aegon / Scottish Equitable. After a number of meetings (both before and after my actual retirement), phone calls and correspondence to establish my exact requirements, a comprehensive report was produced by Tisco with a recommendation to transfer the funds into a new SIPP with Aegon Retirement Choices (ARC). A further meeting was held to review the report and agree on the actions required. The proposed transfer was then initiated by Tisco and I pleased to report that, since the transfer was actioned, I have seen growth of over 3% in the past 4 months.
I continue to have regular contact with, and support from, Tisco to help me to fully understand how to access information in respect of the SIPP and how to make sense of the various charges. The people I have dealt with at Tisco have always been very approachable and patient, attributes that are very important when dealing with someone like myself.
