GBST, the global financial services technology provider, will provide the Personal Pension administration technology to Investec Click & Invest’s digital offering via its award-winning Composer back office platform.
The partnership will support Click & Invest as it extends its discretionary managed online investment service to include a Personal Pension. The new product is being built in conjunction with GBST’s paperless integration system Composer®. In addition, GBST’s award-winning design team is helping to update the consumer-facing website to deliver user-friendly digital experiences which include online calculators, pre- and post-retirement tax relief projection tools as well as pre- and post-sales illustrations.
David Simpson, Head of EMEA at GBST, commented: “Following a competitive tender process our selection as preferred technology supplier for the Click & Invest Personal Pension further demonstrates the strength of our expertise in the pension’s arena. With our strong track record for innovation and speed of delivery, thanks to the flexibility of the Composer® platform, along with our strong digital design experience, we offer a compelling complete solution for financial services companies. We look forward to continuing our work with Investec Click & Invest as we move through the design, configuration and implementation phases.”
Jane Warren, CEO of Click & Invest, commented: “Building the Click & Invest Personal Pension has been one of our most highly anticipated developments since launching the service. We’ve been working hard with the team at GBST to ensure the technology is fully robust and will deliver an exceptional client experience.
“Working with GBST we are building a Personal Pension product that complements our existing service and will offer individuals an intuitive and straightforward online experience allowing them to save for their retirement.”
