Old Mutual launches new TVA service on 14 May
9 May 2018
Old Mutual Wealth is launching a new Transfer Value Analysis (TVA) service, from 9am on 14 May 2018, following the suspension of its old service in April, in response to the clarification made by the Financial Conduct Authority in PS18/6.
The company said that in line with the new regulatory guidance, it would be making a charge for the TVA service and reports – each report will cost £150 + VAT. The charge covers the cost of the technical expertise of the TVA team, the software and the production of the report.
Old Mutual Wealth has been offering TVA services for over 20 years. It has a qualified team of 12 members, with over 40 years TVAS experience.
The new TVA service has been refined to ensure advisers can receive an accurate report as swiftly as possible. As part of this, requests for a report will be submitted through a new tool, which will ensure all the essential information is captured.
Scott Goodsir, managing director of UK distribution at Old Mutual Wealth, said: “A final salary transfer is often the most important piece of advice that a client will ever receive and having all the right information is crucial. Our new TVA service will help us support advisers and their clients as demand for this advice continues to surge.
“The accurate production of a TVA report is a key element of the DB to DC pension transfer process and our 12 strong TVA team are well-equipped to provide swift and accurate analysis.”
