Reliance Mutual, the mutual life assurance and pensions provider, today announces it has become the latest organisation to join Origo's Options Transfers service, the award winning asset transfers service that has transformed what was once a manually-intensive, paper-based and costly process into an efficient, secure, online service, handling tens of thousands of transactions each month.
Paul Hartfield, Client Services Manager at Reliance Mutual, commented, "Retirement planning is at the very heart of our business, so joining Origo's Options Transfers service simply makes sense. Options offers great benefits, including significant reductions in the time taken to transfer, and demonstrates Reliance Mutual's commitment to delivering the best in service for our adviser partners and our members."
Paul Pettitt, Managing Director of Origo, the eCommerce standards and services body for the financial services industry, said: "We are delighted that Reliance Mutual has chosen to join Options Transfers.
"The industry needs to have confidence in its technology services that ultimately affect the service provided to the client, the UK's pensions savers and annuity purchasers. As a fully proven, 'plug and play' service, Options Transfers enables platforms and providers to quickly and efficiently offer automated transfers of pensions, ISAs and GIAs to advisers and their clients. With over 40 brands subscribed, Options Transfers continues to go from strength to strength."
