Chris Atkin, founder, and owner of Atkin Trustees Limited, has resisted the many requests to sell his business to larger competitors.
Wanting to stay true to his personal ethos that Atkin Trustees should always be the voice of small schemes, he has instead transferred a majority stake to his son, Nick Atkin, and fellow director Rob Dales thereby ensuring continuity of the business in its current form. Chris will remain in the business and continue to provide advice to his clients.
Chris Atkin commented “I wanted to ensure our clients continue to receive the personal and thoughtful service they have always received and the only way to ensure this was to ensure the continuity of the business in its current form. Many of our long-standing clients have small pension schemes and would become “lost” in the world of the larger advisers.”
Nick Atkin commented “We are committed to remaining independent and to being the voice of small schemes to enable them to continue their independence without costs making their future uncertain.“
Rob Dales commented “I am delighted to become part of the family and help Nick continue to provide the unique service to our clients as we work together in ensuring members receive their pension on time and giving quick responses to their questions whilst ensuring the trustees meet all of the regulatory and governance requirements without incurring ‘large scheme’ costs.”
Atkin Trustees Limited, trading as Atkin Pensions and Atkin Trustees, provides actuarial and investment consultancy, administration, and trusteeship to small defined benefit schemes.
