Darren Philp, director of policy and market engagement at B&CE, provider of The People’s Pension, said: “Smithfield’s experience in pensions and consumer finance came through very strongly in a highly competitive pitch process. They demonstrated a good technical understanding of the issues affecting the market and presented some innovative ideas to promote what we stand for as a not-for-profit. We look forward to working with them to realise this exciting programme.”
John Kiely, managing director of Smithfield, added: “Our track record in pensions continues to go from strength to strength and our appointment by The People’s Pension is another positive endorsement of our offering. We look forward to delivering some fantastic results on their behalf in the weeks and months ahead.”
