The FT 1000 report, compiled by the Financial Times and Statista, ranks the most innovative and fastest-growing independent companies in the European economy, based on sales revenues generated between January 2012 – December 2015.

The top 1000 companies were narrowed down from 50,000 European enterprises. The research was based on public calls for participation, intensive database research as well as direct contact with tens of thousands of companies.

Selectapension has gone from strength to strength with innovative products and services to meet the demands for pension and investment advice and guidance, especially following the ‘pensions freedoms’. The fintech company has significantly strengthened its workforce over the past two years, and last year moved to larger premises in Crowborough, East Sussex.

Andy McCabe, Managing Director, Selectapension commented: “We are incredibly proud to have been named as one of Europe’s fastest growing companies. Our services makes life much easier for our broad customer base, and we have a superb retention rate with our subscribers. There has never been a greater demand for advice, guidance and support for retirement planning in the UK, and we will continue to innovate and invest in our technology to help meet this need; supporting Advisers, Product Providers and consumers’’.
