Anthony Long joins Stockton-based Vintage Chartered Financial Planners
A NORTH-EAST financial firm has become one of the first in the region to launch an auto-enrolment scheme to help companies adapt to workplace pension changes.
Vintage Financial Planners, in Stockton, has set up a service to manage workplace pension schemes for employers, which will be led by Middlesbrough-born adviser Anthony Long.
Mr Long, a 28-year-old Teesside University graduate, has joined Vintage after more than five years with HSBC, including a spell in the Metro Centre as a deputy branch manager of HSBC subsidiary M&S Bank.
He said: “I am delighted to have become part of such an exciting environment as Vintage becomes one of the very first financial companies to offer an auto-enrolment service to the region’s business community.
“As one of a select group of financial firms with chartered status, Vintage has established an outstanding reputation, and I'm looking forward to helping small, medium and large businesses run their auto-enrolment schemes.”
Steven Hodgson, Vintage partner and a fellow of the Personal Finance Society, added: “By 2017 every company in UK must have registered company pensions scheme but many are unaware of just how much work is involved.
“Through Anthony, our service will guide companies through the potential minefield, helping them set up, manage and run the auto-enrolment schemes for the benefit of their staff.”
