Barnett Waddingham acquires Chase de Vere’s SIPP & SSAS business

Published by Julia Bassett, Andrew Roberts on

Barnett Waddingham has today announced that it has purchased Chase de Vere’s SIPP and SSAS book for an undisclosed figure, in a deal which will see the firm add 250 SIPP and 275 SSAS clients to its existing book of business.

This acquisition of Chase de Vere’s SIPP & SSAS business will see Barnett Waddingham’s SIPP portfolio increase to more than 2,975 schemes representing over £1bn assets under administration (AUA), while the firm’s SSAS portfolio will grow to 2,500 schemes and break over the £4bn AUA mark for the first time.

"Our number one priority remains providing excellent customer service."

The deal follows a successful year of growth for the firm, with the launch of the Barnett Waddingham Flexible SIPP in July, and the acquisition of SIPP & SSAS firm, Harsant Pensions, in August.

Julia Bassett, partner at Barnett Waddingham, said: “It’s been an exceptional year for our SIPP & SSAS businesses, first with the launch of our new Flexible SIPP and the purchase of Harsant Pensions in the summer, and now with the acquisition of Chase de Vere’s SIPP & SSAS book.  Our number one priority remains providing excellent customer service and we are very pleased to welcome Chase de Vere clients to Barnett Waddingham.”
