All you need to create a robust retirement advice proposition

Our New ERA webinar series reviews the main elements of the advice process, both at and during retirement. With the help of independent experts, the series will help you help your clients meet their objectives, and you to protect your business. The retirement market is increasingly a regulatory hotspot, and this series explains the key elements of an evidence-based approach that will help you to meet FCA requirements.

There are seven webinars in the series and each webinar qualifies for CPD:

Introduction and advice principles

Retirement advice is a major regulatory focus, and the FCA’s Assessing Suitability Review 2 will investigate this area in greater detail. With contributions from compliance experts, Rory Percival and James Dingwall, together with Money Alive CEO, Andy Kirby, we introduce the key advice principles that underpin sound retirement planning.

Stress testing and scenario planning

Cashflow modelling is an important part of developing a retirement plan. It highlights current income and spending needs, and helps clients visualise the future. It can also overcome the behavioural influences that could inhibit effective decision-making. This webinar considers all this and the different types of cashflow models available.

Withdrawal policies

This webinar examines the purpose of the Withdrawal Policy Statement and, together with independent consultant David Elliott, introduces the concept of a retirement ‘satnav’. We also explore the role of non-pension assets and their tax treatment, and discuss financial resilience and how this differs from capacity for loss.

The review process 

It’s crucial that advice processes consider a clients’ current and future requirements. We break down the review process into five key elements: income, wealth, health, later life and estate. We then look at how a review process should work, starting with a pre-review to capture changes, before moving through four distinct stages.
