Barnett Waddingham joins Aries Pensions Club

Aries Pension and Insurance Systems has announced that Barnett Waddingham has joined the Aries Pensions Club.

In joining, the firm gains access to the Aries Pensions System (APS) that contains 20 years of pensions legislation research.

The APS offers members with pensions technical support. Members include consultants, administrators, life offices, pensions funds and specialist providers.

Mandie Bird, associate at Barnett Waddingham, said: “Aries is absolutely vital to our own service offering.

“Being one step ahead, for any organisation, is paramount and the sophistication of this system allows exactly that.”

Ian Neale, director at Aries, added: “Complification is still rampant. Our mission is to guide administrators and consultants – and indeed the schemes themselves – through this labyrinth of legislation.

“We provide tools and comprehensive support, saving people time by pin-pointing the relevant legislation as well as explaining what it means.

“We also encourage members to collaborate in the future development of APS, ensuring it continues to meet their needs.”
