Dubai merger for Doncaster pension firm expecting to increase workforce 40%
Doncaster-based My Pension Expert has announced a merger with Clicksco Financial Services, the finance arm of international digital data agency Clicksco Group.
Collaborating under My Expert Holdings, the merger is good news for the 50+ strong Doncaster workforce, with My Pension Expert expecting to increase staff by 40% and expand its Hayfield Business Park operations.
By combining My Pension Expert’s exemplary finance and sales function with Clicksco’s Southend-based lead generation services and international online marketing tools, My Expert Holdings is tipped to become the number one ‘at retirement’ advisory firm.
Scott Mullen, director at My Pension Expert, explains: “This merger helps safeguard the My Pension Expert brand.
“My Expert Holdings will be a force to be reckoned with in the financial services industry; there isn’t a comparable organisation in the sector that shares our level of advisory expertise combined with Clicksco’s big data manipulation and lead generation services.
“Together, we will continue to provide an excellent service for our customers while growing our prospects.
“In Doncaster, this means recruitment has never been more important. We are passionate about employing local people and providing on-the-job training.
“We’re now on the lookout for staff at all levels, including graduates with a finance specialism and seasoned sales professionals ready for a new challenge.”
Mark Nosworthy, CEO of Clicksco Financial Services added: “My Pension Expert has been using our lead generation services for the past eighteen months and during this time our two businesses have built a mutual respect for one another.
“We have watched while the brand has firmly established itself as a trusted and knowledgeable advisory organisation. With the pension reforms coming into effect this year, that reputation has never been more important.
“At Clicksco, our core offering is digital marketing so we lean towards like-minded partners who are technologically-advanced and customer-centric.
“The decision to establish My Expert Holdings gives us an excellent foothold in the financial services industry, allowing us to build on our trusted customer base and develop it further to support a greater numbers of UK consumers, in the At Retirement market and through our ever growing portfolio of product and advice services.”
Established in 2009, Dubai-headquartered Clicksco Group employs over 200 people from operations in 14 countries, including three offices in the UK. Earlier this year, the Group announced the appointment of finance and investment expert John Townsend, to its board.
The Clicksco Group has enjoyed an average 26% growth over the past four years and is globally renowned for its customer lead generation, web search, comparison shopping and affiliate marketing services, working alongside partners including Google, Yahoo and Amazon.
