Palatine investment in My Pension Expert confirmed following FCA approval
We have completed a significant investment into My Pension Expert following approval from the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).
My Pension Expert is the UK’s leading at-retirement adviser, with its telephone and video-based services allowing the company to provide independent financial advice on a national scale.
Our investment will accelerate My Pension Expert’s growth plans as the business aims to ensure people of all wealth brackets can receive independent financial advice and achieve their desired retirement outcomes.
As part of the process, My Money Expert also completed a debt refinancing with Beechbrook Capital. The new package from Beechbrook includes potential for additional funds to be made available to the business to facilitate further expansion in the future.
Our investment was confirmed in May 2022, with FCA change of controller approval being granted at the end of July.
Andrew Megson, executive chairman at My Pension Expert, commented: “We are delighted to conclude the investment by Palatine. It will enable My Pension Expert to further build on its success over recent years and fast-track our growth as we deliver much-needed independent financial advice to people across the UK. I believe this is fundamental to improving people’s financial security in their retirement.
“Palatine is the perfect partner to support this growth, and their strong Environmental, Social and Governance credentials were a key factor in the decision to work with them. All the team at My Pension Expert are incredibly excited about building a fantastic future helping people to achieve their goals in retirement.”
The refinancing of the company debt with Beechbrook Capital will provide further support to accelerate the growth of the business and allow My Pension Expert to capitalise on emerging opportunities.
