The original blog published here has been the subject of certain threats by Tideway Investments both to me and to my employers.
I have no intention of letting this blog get in the way of my daily work by defending the positions it takes in courts of law.
I would remind readers that what I write, I write in my own time, in my own name and though I will refer to my work with my employers, this blog is nothing to do with them. So please do not go whingeing on as if it was!
If you want to read what Tideway is saying, the links is below; if you want to read what the Pension Regulator is saying, the link is below.
It is unfortunate that the excellent debate – which you can find in the comments to this blog, has been curtailed by these threats, however it will be renewed later this month.
If you would like to be a part of the Great Pension Transfer Debate on June 19th – you can do so via this link! Free speech assured!
