"Our prospects are equally exciting. Contracts were exchanged in January 2016 for the acquisition of Suffolk Life and following completion that is subject only to regulatory approval, Curtis Banks will become the second largest independent SIPP administrator in the UK and in a very strong position to continue its strategy for growth, both organically and through the acquisition of further complementary books of SIPPs."
