Like many, I was expecting a short announcement during the Autumn Statement followed thereafter by the publication of pages of detail explaining the new pension death tax rules. I certainly wasn't expecting to read about it on my BBC News app on the Sunday night before the Conservative Party conference.

Pension schemes should not rest easy from Scots voting no to independence, a Sipps firm warned this morning, as experts signalled they still see significant change on the horizon.

Barnett Waddingham has purchased Chase de Vere's Sipp and SSAS book for an undisclosed fee, it announced this morning.

In November last year, the FCA asked Sipp operators to complete a (long) questionnaire to help them with their third thematic review. Among the 40 or so data items requested was the amount of Assets Under Administration (AUA).

Barnett Waddingham, the provider of actuarial and consultancy services, has launched a pensions education service for employers looking to inform their senior-level staff on the various changes surrounding pension benefits.

The government has advanced its pension thinking this month with the enactment of The Finance Act 2014, guidance on allowing new retirees access to next year's pension freedoms and its response to the consultation on those freedoms.

There will be 'dismay' among those working in the Sipp sector, a key figure at Barnett Waddingham says, after an FCA fired a broadside over 'unacceptable' widespread failings.
Influential Sipps figures, as well as financial advisers, have voiced support for a permitted list of Sipp investments in the face of growing Sipp regulation.
A new 'Flexible Sipp' is the latest product to be launched today by Barnett Waddingham.
Is it time to alter the requirement for all SSAS members to be trustees in order to be exempt from the Maxwellian protections of Pensions Act 1995?
