Drawdown Review Guide

This CPD accredited guide written with Defaqto covers key subjects to consider for drawdown reviews, from both a regulatory and best practice perspective.

CPD accredited for advisers and paraplanners

The long term impacts on markets and economies as a result of Covid-19 are yet to become clear. Depressed growth prospects, dividend cuts and low interest rates may be the perfect storm for those in drawdown. 

None of us know what tomorrow holds and the right advice today will only be known in hindsight.

In this climate it is more important than ever for advisers to use a robust and repeatable client review process to help clients to make prudent financial decisions.

This CPD accredited Drawdown Review Guide is written for financial advisers and paraplanners providing ongoing advice to clients in drawdown, to help you:

  • understand the concerns your clients may be experiencing in a post-Covid-19 world
  • review the key steps that should be considered in every drawdown review
  • build a robust and repeatable process that enables you to provide your clients with a clear evidence-based pathway forward
  • help your clients to make prudent financial decisions.
  • record your research and findings to evidence ongoing suitability and sustainability.

Inside you’ll find a raft of checklists and templates for you to use at every stage of reviews, as a foundation for your files and as helpful aide memoires.
