Mr Bridge said: “We are not complacent. Many challenges lie ahead, but we will continue to work hard for our members and our supporting intermediaries to deliver good products and service.”


Trystan Lewis, founder of the Chester-based Griffin Wealth Management, said: “This product might not be anything new, but sounds like Cirencester is trying to brand it in a way that the general public can understand it easily and relate to it, in contrast to some of the jargon-ridden products available. If you explain things differently, people might have a better idea of the benefits of the product.”
