Mike Kempster

City Trustees, the specialist SIPP and SSAS administration business which is part of the Mattioli Woods group, is pleased to announce today the appointment of Mike Kempster as Business Development Manager.

Mike joins City Trustees after a four-and-a-half-year stint at Cofunds where he was Strategic Partnership Manager, successfully building relationships with advisers across the UK's intermediary market. Commenting on this new appointment, Ed Carey, Managing Director of City Trustees, said:

"We are delighted to welcome Mike to the business. We have a strong reputation for being a bespoke pensions provider to the IFA market, and this appointment will further strengthen our intermediary proposition".
Mike will focus on providing support to IFAs and part of his remit will be to assist intermediaries in creating solutions for their clients to help increase their sales. Ed adds:

"We are currently developing the remit of services we offer to the market place with a view to introducing both platform technology and an adviser academy in 2015, which will provide meaningful, strategic guidance on developing an IFA's business".

The appointment comes at an exciting time for the business, with a 36.1% increase in the number of SIPP and SSAS schemes under its administration for the six months ending 30 November 2013. It has also recently been awarded the highest 5 Star Rating in Defaqto's Star Ratings for self-invested personal pensions (SIPPs) for 2014. Mike concludes:

"I am thrilled to have the opportunity to join City Trustees and to be part of a successful and growing plc group. I am keen to expand my IFA connections and am excited about helping advisers to grow their businesses".
