New pension freedoms
As you know pensions have changed drastically.
There is now more flexibility over how your defined contribution pension clients can access their funds from age 55 onwards.
However with this flexibility, comes more responsibility. Most clients will want their pension fund to last them the rest of their life so careful, on-going advice will be needed. This represents fantastic opportunities for you to build long term relationships with clients and help them manage their retirement in line with the new changes. Visit our ‘New pension freedoms’ webpage for more information.
