Do you ever get tired of the usual corporate approach to Christmas? Snow scenes from foreign lands with animated writing perhaps? A quiet mention that Christmas Cards won’t be issued this year but here’s a link to an electronic something or other? Well, this year at Odyssey

October 2021

We’re pleased to announce that we’re launching the Odyssey Adviser Academy this November. As pretentious as that sounds, the aims are fairly simple: It’s aimed at the less-experienced / new / young up-and-coming adviser. Over the course of a year, we’..

As most of you know, we started our SIPP and SSAS journey barely three years ago, when the sun was still shining, we felt a lot younger, and we were all allowed to share a cup of coffee face to face. Not the same cup, of course, I hasten to add. We remain ..

First and foremost, we hope that you and your families are all keeping safe and well through these continued difficult times. As you know, from time to time we look to keep you all up to date on developments here at Odyssey Pensions. With that in mind there’s a couple of things…

Following on from the initial success of the launch of our casebooks, we’ve decided that the time is right to issue another. This time, the subject matter looks at what can go wrong with Sponsoring Employer loans, and some of the pitfalls to try to avoid. Useful reading (we think) for any adviser active in the SSAS market! You can access Our View articles through the title link, and we’ll soon be dedicating a separate section of our website to our casebooks.


We’re pleased to let you know that we’ve added further Tech Bites to our website suite:

– A comparison of SIPP, SSAS and Group SIPP which hopefully provides some insight into the differences between the contracts.
Hopefully, they will be of some interest! You can find the Tech Bite section by following the title link.
