September 28, 2017  /   No Comments

FCSA welcomes Octopus Investments as new business partnerThe Freelancer and Contractor Services Association (FCSA), the UK’s largest independent trade association for professional employment services, has formed a partnership with investment solutions provider Octopus Investments.

The partnership will give FCSA’s members and the freelancers and contractors they support access to a raft of investment opportunities tailored specifically for self-employed professionals and their companies.

Founded in 2000, Octopus is dedicated to designing innovative investment solutions for individuals and small business owners and has more than 500 employees who look after over £7 billion of assets on behalf of more than 50,000 investors.

Commenting on becoming an FCSA business partner, Mark Williams, Head of SME Business Solutions at Octopus said: “We are delighted to be working with FCSA to help grow awareness of the different opportunities available for self-employed professionals and their companies. In a low interest rate environment with rising inflation, it is important for contractors and freelancers to be searching for the best options to manage their money better. Contractors work hard for their money. We look forward to working with FCSA members and the freelancers and contractors they support to help them with important investment decisions and make their money work harder for them, too.”

FCSA represents professional employment services such as umbrella employers and accountancy service providers and was set up in 2008 to set the benchmark for those working in the industry. It works tirelessly to protect contractors and freelancers and drive up standards in a historically unregulated industry.

Julia Kermode, FCSA’s chief executive, added: “We are delighted to welcome Octopus Investments as a partner safe in the knowledge that they understand the investment challenges that small businesses, freelancers and contractors face. Octopus prides itself on helping real people to solve real financial problems and I know that Mark and his team will be providing members and their clients with a first-class financial service to take the pain out of their financial and investment decisions. It’s good to have them on board.”
