Over the next nine months, representatives from the group will be hosting 2,500 IFAs in 75 venues. The first round of seminars will commence on 2nd March, 2010 in Manchester, finishing with meetings in Ascot and Cambridge on 22nd March, 2010. Other seminars are planned in June, September and November.
Specifically, Just Retirement will be providing IFAs with updates on how to maximise retirement income and exploring alternative sources of this income from other assets. It will also provide updates on recent and forthcoming changes in the retirement market, including its much anticipated views on possible solutions to the issues thrown up by the Retail Distribution Review.
Commenting on the programme, Jan Holt, business development manager, said: “There has never been a more appropriate time to meet with IFAs. Aside from the challenges of the current recession, the industry is facing issues such as Money Guidance and RDR. As the leader within enhanced annuities in the UK and one of the largest lenders in equity release, Just Retirement is ideally placed to comment on the implications and the possible solutions. We are interested in hearing how IFAs are coping with the challenge of RDR. In response, we will be sharing our thoughts on the options for retirement advice and I hope that these will receive a positive welcome.”
