Retirement Planning Project
I want to help as many people as possible make the right decisions at retirement and plan for a financially secure retirement with peace of mind and security. To do this I have set up the Retirement Planning Project.
The project will make it easier for people to learn about pensions and retirement planning and easier to get help or advice. I hope the project will help close the advice gap.
Brits do not trust financial advisers
The majority of Brits do not trust financial advisers according to a survey conducted by advice firm My Pension Expert.
This is nothing new as the poor perception of advisers has been widely reported in the past, and unfortunately the general public often cannot separate the trustworthy and passionate advisers from the firms that sell rather than advise.
