Actuaries and Pensions specialist Wolanski moves to City

Actuaries and pension specialists, Wolanski, are moving from their current offices in Hatton Garden to bigger premises in Moorgate, in the City of London, on December 1.

The company has also used the move to smarten its branding by launching a revised corporate logo which will be used on all stationery and literature, as well as in the forthcoming upgrade of its website.

Hyman Wolanski, senior partner at Wolanski, says: “The company has doubled in size in the last two years, which has resulted in very &#39cosy&#39 working conditions in current offices.

“The new premises will give improved facilities for meeting with clients, better working conditions for staff and space for further expansion.

“The other advantage of moving early in December is that is that it will be in time to respond to the long-awaited Inland Revenue pensions consultative document, which is expected any time now.

“The company plans to hold a series of breakfast and lunchtime seminars on the new Inland Revenue proposals for our clients and professional introducers, which will be easier in the new offices as there will be much more space.”
