City Trustees acquire pension administration business from Ashcourt Rowan plc

City Trustees is proud to announce that it has acquired the pension administration business from UK Wealth Management Limited (UKWM), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Ashcourt Rowan plc.

The business has been acquired for a total cash consideration of up to £355,000 comprising an initial consideration of £275,000, plus deferred consideration of up to £80,000.

This is the second acquisition of a portfolio from Ashcourt Rowan for City Trustees. This new opportunity will add approximately 460 new SIPP and SSAS schemes, with total funds under trusteeship of over £190 million.

Ed Carey, Managing Director of City Trustees, said:

"Our strategic relationship with Ashcourt Rowan demonstrates our capabilities to work with professional intermediaries, providing a well-resourced and fully compliant administration business.

"This is another great addition to the City Trustees portfolio that will help grow our service proposition, particularly at a time when we are seeing a number of changes in the SIPP market with providers coming under increasing pressure and regulatory scrutiny."
