Swiss insurance specialist Zurich Financial Services has enhanced its pension proposition and is now offering greater pricing flexibility on its range of individual pensions, as a response to growing demand from advisers and their clients.

Zurich is introducing a new competitive factory gate priced charging structure across its range of pre- and post-retirement pension offerings, designed to provide advisers and their clients with greater choice and control.

In addition to offering greater flexibility on its pension products, the Swiss company has also refreshed the charging structure across its trustee investment plan. As a result, advisers will now be able to access a wider range of initial commissions and fund-based/trail commission options, enabling them to offer terms most appropriate to their customers’ needs.

Furthermore, Zurich is also enhancing its individual pension proposition with the introduction of 18 new fund links. Intermediaries and investors will now be able to choose from over 150 funds from a range of the UK’s leading fund managers.

These new enhancements build on the success of previous developments announced earlier in 2007.
