Views on Perspective
In this short film some of the leading pensions professionals give their thoughts on why Perspective is essential within the UK pensions industry.
Adding scheme rules to Perspective is a valuable additional service that Pendragon provides. In this film Gary Collinson of RPMI describes the benefits of this bespoke offering.
I have used Perspective for a number of years and I find it a fantastic tool which enables me to do my job quickly and efficiently. It has all the key reference materials that I need or may be interested in which means it’s a one stop shop and I don’t need to look elsewhere or subscribe to other publications! The news alerts are brilliant and keep me updated on what’s happening in pensions on a daily basis. The recent addition of the Public Sector section has made it even more invaluable.

I have been using perspective for almost 20 years in various roles, across both the public and private sector and consider it to be the ‘go to’ tool with which to do my day to day job. The ease with which I can find legislation, view legislation at different points in time and search for legislation is invaluable. Over the years Perspective has moved forward with IT developments, having Perspective on the internet, for me, is by far one of the best developments. I now have Perspective ‘on the go‘ and can answer technical queries on the spot from my ipad, wonderful!

The UK pensions industry is fragmented with many participants. Whether from a large firm or a new start a hallmark of the serious professional has been Perspective on their desktop. It is a key tool underlying the appropriate management of the many operational and legal risks faced in the industry.
If I didn’t have Perspective on the desktop of every pensions professional in our business, I don’t think I would admit it.

Perspective continues to play an important part in our analysis of the increasingly intense level of legislative change we’re seeing in pensions. The regular news alerts are also a great help in highlighting noteworthy items that might have slipped through other monitoring processes.

I’ve been using Perspective daily for the past nine years. It allows me to quickly and simply access updated legislation as well as a multitude of Government and regulatory guidance. The time travel facility allows easy identification of when changes in legislation or guidance took place and therefore which rules were applicable on a specified date. It also enables us to respond quickly and accurately to announced and actual changes in legislation. The time saved through using Perspective is comparable to another member of staff.

Perspective is an essential tool for pension lawyers and anyone else in the industry who needs to refer to the detail of pensions legislation. Our team at ARC Pensions Law use it every day to research and support our advice to clients.

Perspective is the most wonderful bit of software. I don’t know how any pension lawyer could do their job without it! Thank you so much for all of the hard work that goes into maintaining it.
Managing Associate, Linklaters
For me, Perspective is the “go to” information service for pension lawyers. It covers all the legislation I need and I have complete confidence in it being bang up-to-date – vital when it comes to giving legal advice in such a technical area. Perspective allows me to get to the answers quickly for my clients and, as far as I am concerned, is indispensable when it comes to doing my day-to-day work.
In my view Perspective is, by far, the best on-line pensions legislation and reference system on the market. It enabled me to undertake my role in the knowledge that I always had the most up to date and accurate information to hand. What I found invaluable was to see any regulations as they currently stand but also be able to view amendments made in the past and any amendments due to come into effect in the future. Perspective is a tremendous help in writing and answering questions about pensions.

I’ve been using Perspective since 2007. It allows me and my colleagues to quickly and simply access updated legislation and government and regulatory guidance. The time travel facility allows easy identification of when changes in legislation or guidance occurred and which rules were applicable on a specified date. It also enables us to respond quickly and accurately to announced and actual changes in legislation, ensuring our clients can access products and services that are aligned with regulatory expectations, allowing them to save and invest with confidence.

With Perspective, pension funds have the ability to add their scheme rules to the service so that they are integrated and used alongside all the other documents on Perspective. All documents are cross-linked and have the ‘time travel’ feature applied to them, enabling quick access for the pension fund and its advisors.
