Tontine Trust Partners with Westerbrink to Launch Pan-European Lifetime Income Pension in 27 Countries

Dublin, Ireland, August 26, 2020 --( Tontine Trust is delighted to announce a partnership with leading European pension consultancy Westerbrink. The long-term strategic cooperation will be key in realising Tontine Trust’s ambitions to offer Pan-European retirement products to consumers in over 27 European markets within two years.

Founder and CEO of Tontine Trust, Dean McClelland said, “The new Pan-European Personal Pension regulations enable us to deliver a whole new generation of affordable lifetime income products that are precision engineered to address the actual requirements of savers & retirees. Through partnering with expert consultancies such as Westerbrink we significantly enhance our ability to handle the regional nuances that we will encounter as we roll-out our products across the currently fragmented EU pensions market.

"We are especially delighted to work with Prof. Dr. Hans van Meerten and Jorik Van Zanden, LL.M.

"Hans is professor of European Pensions Law at Utrecht University, a member of European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority (EIOPAs) expert committees and as a leading advocate for pension sector reform is often able to foresee the evolution of the pension industry years ahead.

"Jorik recently started at Westerbrink next to his role as PhD researcher at Utrecht University. Before joining Westerbrink, Jorik worked at an international asset manager and the European Parliament, where he worked on the Pan-European Personal Pension (PEPP) regulation. He will be working closely with Tontine Trust in an advisory role as a pan-European pensions strategist.”

John Westerbrink, Founder and CEO of Westerbrink said, "We are delighted to assist Tontine Trust in their ambitions to become a leading pan-European pensions provider."
