Atkin & Co release fee estimator to help schemes evaluate their current fee arrangements

In our experience, small and medium sized schemes can often be paying more than they should. This estimator allows them to get an indication of what we would charge which they can use as benchmark to compare against their current fee arrangements.


We used Atkin Trustees as part of a wind up of our scheme. With the help and support of Richard Bryant we were able to move forward a process that had become stalled - his expert guidance was invaluable to me and the other Trustee involved. The whole process was handled in a practical and timely manner, and I felt at last we had access to expert Trustee experience and knowledge to guide us through the many obstacles that we faced. It was a pleasure working with Richard.
