Andy has spent over 14 years as a pension trustee, advising clients about SIPP and SSAS pensions along with his wife Jean.

Together they established Astute Trustee services in February 2012 to offer a friendly, professional and efficient service to clients and their advisers who used Small Self-Administered Pensions.

In April 2013 following the success of Astute SSAS pensions it was decided to offer Self Invested Personal Pensions in anticipation of the impending changes in the regulatory requirements.

Astute take a pragmatic approach to investments ensuring that clients enjoy the wide choice available but ensuring they remain invested in permitted assets. As many pension providers struggle to understand the investments held within their pensions in light of the FCA Capital adequacy rules Astute have managed the investments held within their pensions since inception and therefore have no issues with these new rules.

Astute promise to deal with your technical queries within 24 hours if unable to do so at initial contact.

The aim is to focus on quality of service offered to advisers and their clients.
