EMAIL | peter.jones@ssaspractitioner.com

Peter brings over 20 years SSAS industry experience to his leadership role at SSAS Practitioner.com. Following successful tenures as a Pensions Consultant at two prominent SSAS providers Peter established SSAS Practitioner.com in 2009.

Today the company has over £200m under management, providing excellent value, fully-flexible SSASs to a broad range of UK business clients.

Peter looks to continue SSAS Practitioner.com's organic growth, holding dear the company’s core values of flexibility, excellent customer service, and value, whilst managing to avoid much of the red tape that is often associated with larger SSAS providers. Peter believes that the high levels of commitment and service provided by our excellent staff is evidenced by SSAS Practitioner.com's impressive year-on-year growth.

SSAS Practitioner.com is independently owned. Peter believes that retaining this autonomous status is key to our continued commitment to provide a high-level, good-value SSAS service for clients and their advisers.
