Life and Pensions


In life and pensions, the focus is on delivering fair outcomes to customers in the wake of the biggest changes to pensions legislation in a generation. This has driven intense debate and activity on the development of “direct to consumer” advice and guidance propositions, product governance and increasing the level of consumer engagement with pensions. FCA thematic activity into standard and enhanced annuities continues, and new incarnations of equity release products are currently prominent topics of conversation.

Huntswood works extensively with firms across the sector providing specialist consultancy to ensure that firms are compliant, delivering for customers and achieving their commercial goals through a time of intense legislative and regulatory change. We also provide temporary resource to deal with operational spikes, source specialists for niche roles and manage change programmes, including the training needed to ensure that change is embedded successfully.

We provide expert insight to help firms in this sector keep up to date with regulatory and industry developments. Through blogs, videos, infographics and reports, we cover a wide range of issues including advice and suitability, pensions, culture and financial crime.
