Event overview

Planning for a healthy and comfortable retirement can be a daunting task. With so many options to choose from and so many areas to consider, it is a complex topic. As a result, many people do not give enough consideration to their retirement early enough or make the necessary plans to ensure they have the retirement they want and deserve.

When can I retire? Can I afford to retire? Can I retire early? How much will I need in retirement? When do I need to start planning? These are just some of the most popular questions people ask themselves as they approach retirement. But defining the answers can be very tricky.

Our latest webinar will explore these questions and help you better understand what actions you can take to get yourself prepared for retirement. Hosted by David Melloy, he will be joined by our Independent Financial Advisers, Lindsay Carter and Paul Tuson, to discuss this topic in depth and provide you with tangible hints, tips and guidance on how to approach your own retirement planning.

Want to join in?

We are running two separate 45 minute webinar events on Thursday 20th May and you can register for the one that suits you best by clicking on the relevant time slot below. We are expecting high demand and as places will be limited, we encourage you to register quickly.
