Future Asset and Avalon team up for Sipp offering

Cardiff-based Future Asset Management has teamed up with platform provider Avalon Investment Services to offer clients a white-labelled Sipp.
The wrapper, which will be called the Future Asset Management Sipp, will be made available to the firm’s clients with more than £70,000 of investable assets.
Future’s managing partner David Wingar (pictured) said he turned to Avalon after becoming dissatisfied with Jardine Lloyd Thompson, the firm he partnered with five years ago for a Sipp offering.
‘Instead of us fitting in with [Avalon], it fixed the arrangement in a way we would be happy to see,’ he said. ‘It’s just trying to deliver what our clients want rather than trying to fit a square peg into a round hole.’
Wingar said he was also in the process of hiring a new adviser, Richard Lovering, who would join the firm as a mortgage consultant, allowing him and his son Graham, who is also an adviser with the firm, to focus on financial planning.
