Navigating the retirement maze
Post pension freedoms, more people are choosing drawdown for their retirement, many without advice, and often withdrawing at rates of income that may not last a lifetime. What’s more, retirement is increasingly a transition. Against this background, adviser firms need to take a holistic view of retirement, managing and adapting their clients’ plans as circumstances change. Our range of reports look at these issues and show how you can help clients achieve a better retirement.
