Fairbairn’s Overseas Pension in international sales drive

The Overseas Pension has appointed an international sales manager.


Alex Cockerill has worked in the QROPS sector for the “past couple of years”, according to Overseas Pension, mostly in South Africa. His role will be to expand distribution of the Overseas Pension, particularly in the Middle and Far East and South Africa.

Nathan Lihou, Fairbairn Trust chief operating officer, said Cockerill’s appointment marked the start of a new expansion phase for Overseas Pension, whose ultimate parent company is South Africa’s Old Mutual, which owns Fairbairn Trust as well as Nedbank and Skandia.

Lihou added: “[Cockerill] not only knows the QROPS market but has a key understanding of our home territory in South Africa and will be able to provide support to Fairbairn Trust Company’s QROPS team.

“If you look at what has happened in the UK pension market, the winners are firms that put their clients first and provide first rate service and technical support.

“We have been building our back end QROPS team and believe that we have got to the point that our service and support levels are the highest in the industry.”
