SIPP provider Curtis Banks has appointed Jessica Tiley as manager of its expanding small self administered schemes business.
She joins from JLT Group where she was the SSAS team manager.
Curtis Banks says SSASs is an overlooked pension planning tool and an area it wants to develop further.
Ms Tiley has over 25 years of experience in the financial services sector, 11 of which have been spent working in the SSAS sector.
She will be responsible for driving forward Curtis Banks’ SSAS offering, providing oversight of SSAS operations, and ensuring good customer outcomes and greater flexibility in investment options.
Will Self, CEO at Curtis Banks, said: “SSAS is a very much overlooked pension planning tool and as we look to develop this further, we wanted to strengthen the team and set about finding the right person to lead our SSAS unit.
“We wanted to identify someone that had experience and is driven to succeed. That is why we are so pleased to welcome Jess to the Curtis Banks family. She is highly experienced and her breadth of knowledge adds significant expertise as she steps in to lead our SSAS team.”
In 2020 Curtis Banks acquired SIPP and SSAS provider Talbot and Muir and Dunstan Thomas, a provider of financial technology services.
Last year Curtis Banks said the launch of its Imago Administration system for SSAS was boosted by Dunstan Thomas seeing “an extremely strong” pipeline of anticipated contracts from previous users of an alternative system looking to move away from ageing software.
