The future's golden for Jersey pensions

Tuesday 11 February 2014

A recent change to the Jersey pension regulations means Islanders are able to include allocated physical gold as an asset class in pension funds.

In answer to the change to the Jersey Retirement Annuity Trust Schemes (RATS) GoldMoney and Vantage are jointly holding a breakfast seminar. It will take place on Thursday 20 February at the Grand Jersey from 7.45 am, with the seminar running from 8 am to 9 am.

Richard Packman, Managing Director of Vantage, said they would be sharing the reasons why RATS are such an excellent product choice.

He said: ‘We have decided to make this our first seminar of the year due to the volume of interest we’ve received from Jersey customers keen to start including gold in their RATS portfolio. This change has just taken place and is an exciting opportunity for people to boost their pension holdings with an asset class that has a long history of wealth protection.”

The seminar will be hosted by GoldMoney’s Head of European Business Development Martyn White.

"These pensions are flexible, portable, low cost and allow holders to have greater control over their investment strategy. The addition of allocated physical gold bullion to the asset list is great news, as following the economic uncertainties of the last few years diversification is very much the key ingredient to providing a shock-proof retirement pot,” he said.
