There_goes_the_pension Last week’s decision by Gordon Brown to stop people using residential property in self-invested pensions may have caused some upset for City directors looking for ways to avoid tax on their annual bonus.

‘Tenon directors are also disappointed, as their personal collections of fine wines, antiques and Stanley Gibbons stamps have been gathering dust pending A-Day.’

It continued: ‘Peter O’Sullivan, director of Financial Services at Tenon, has extended a warm invitation to high net worth individuals.
