Lisa Bardell – Business Partnership Manager at Options UK 

What do you think separates Options from your competitors? 

We’re genuinely customer-focused, so we invest more time in maintaining relationships with clients, and increasing awareness of our products and services to attract new business. In my role, which requires specialist expertise in commercial property SIPPs and SSAS, it means working closely with accountants and IFAs, plus privately-owned businesses (covering a wide range from dentists to industrial firms) that own the property or properties they trade from. We’re always looking to stay ahead of the curve by identifying new market trends as soon as they emerge. One example in my specialist area right now is the shift towards hybrid working in many sectors which has created opportunities to convert offices to hotels using a SIPP or SSAS.

STM Group plc (LON:STM) is a multi-jurisdictional financial services group listed on the Alternative Investment Market of the London Stock Exchange. The Group was formed as a strategic investment company specifically to build a leading financial services group originally operating in the international corporate and trustee service provider (CTSPs) sector.
