Press release 19 December 2018.
Employee benefits consultancy Vintage Corporate Ltd is the latest company to join GRiD, the industry body for the group risk sector.
Vintage Corporate specialises in workplace pension schemes, financial education and flexible rewards. The company advises over 1,000 corporate pension clients and is looking to capitalise on the opportunity to introduce them to group risk.
Gary Briggs, managing director for Vintage Corporate said: “We’re looking forward to working with group risk specialists within the industry – both providers and advisers, learning from their expertise and, in so doing, improve how we operate. We’re a growing company and this will help us on the next stage of our journey. It’s also going to be a very useful forum to help us work at the top of our game in group risk, and keep abreast of relevant legislation.”
As a member of GRiD, Vintage Corporate will benefit from networking, support with responses to consultation papers and discounted industry events as well as access to top industry specialists, employer research and pan-industry claims data.
Steve Bridger, chair of GRiD said, “We’re a constantly evolving industry body, we’ve had great feedback on the initiatives we’ve undertaken this year, from our Training Academy to our research. We all learn from each other’s expertise and knowledge, and that benefits the industry, clients and employees. We very much welcome Vintage Corporate and look forward to working together.”
GRiD works with government departments and regulators involved in legislation and regulation affecting group risk benefits, as well as other organisations involved in the benefits and financial protection arenas. Through a collective voice to Government, policymakers, stakeholders and employers, the organisation promotes group risk and the value it can add. Members benefit from the strength of the size of the organisation on a macro level, achieving a greater share of voice through GRiD membership, as well as keeping up to date on developments that affect their business and clients.
