Remodelling retirement

The path to retirement is changing, are you?

The modern world of retirement looks different to that of our predecessors. From healthier, wealthier lifestyles and rising longevity, to the declining relevance of social rules that have defined society for generations; the retirement landscape is being remodelled by the individuals living it.

This changing environment offers an opportunity for advisers. An opportunity to rethink client communications. An opportunity to stand at the forefront of regulatory reform and ensure clients are prepared for, and able to deal with the realities of modern retirement.

We’ve teamed up with Professional Adviser to better understand these opportunities and highlight the range of flexible solutions needed to help clients.

With exclusive research looking at how new trends are shaping the way people retire, an analysis of the impact of Covid-19 on retirement plans, and a deeper look at future economic policies and taxes that may also impact savers, this guide is a unique resource given the complex market environment we find ourselves in.
