Wealthsimple, a global digital investment manager, is today introducing a lost pension finder to help people build a strong financial future by locating lost or misplaced pension pots.
The lost pension finder makes it incredibly easy and simple for people to locate previous pension pots and combine them into a Wealthsimple Pension. The new feature is being introduced with pension search and transfer service MyFutureNow and is available to Wealthsimple clients through the company's award-winning website.
“Every pound in your pension pot counts towards a comfortable retirement but the reality is that a lot of the people in the UK are leaving unclaimed savings on the table with pensions they've forgotten about or can't remember the details for,” said Toby Triebel, CEO Europe, Wealthsimple. “The Lost Pension finder is a feature we hope will inspire people to re-discover their lost savings and help them work towards securing a stronger future.”
"Our aim is simple, to help people take control of their retirement planning. We make it much easier for customers to find and then keep track of their pension savings. This addresses a major issue in the industry." - Alan Browne, CEO, MyFutureNow
