Punter Southall Launches New Workplace Savings Business
01 Feb 2016

​Punter Southall Group has today launched a major new workplace pensions and savings business which aims to help employers of every size build rewards and benefits which are competitive, affordable and deliver the best possible outcome for employees.

Punter Southall Aspire brings together three specialist businesses: Punter Southall Defined Contribution Consulting; CAMRADATA, the investment research firm; and Aspire to Retire, a leading provider of member communications services. The launch of the new business also follows Punter Southall Group’s acquisition in October last year of Ashcourt Rowan Corporate Solutions from Towry Law.

As Punter Southall Aspire, the combined business will offer a full range of technology-driven workplace services, including pension provision, pension consultancy, investment research and member communications. It launches with 800 clients and with offices in 11 key locations across the UK including Edinburgh, York, Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol and London.

The business will be led by Steve Butler who founded CAMRADATA before going on to hold senior positions across the Punter Southall Group.

Commenting on the launch of the new business, Steve Butler, Chief Executive of Punter Southall Aspire, said: “Employers are being expected to play a growing role in helping individuals save and plan for their retirement yet policy and regulatory changes do not make that easy. Our ambition is to help employers build rewards and benefits that attract and retain the best, and make workplace savings simple and accessible for all”

Punter Southall Group Chief Executive and co-founder, Jonathan Punter, said:
 
“Over the last 28 years, we’ve grown by anticipating and responding to the shifts in pensions, savings and investments and have guided our clients accordingly. This new business will support employers as workplace pensions and benefits converge still further.”
