Retirement Planning

Retirement Planning

Why Retirement Planning is so vitally important? Retirement can be a golden period, full of adventure and fulfilment with each day bringing new joys and new experiences – but only if retirees plan for it in advance.

Most recent research indicates that over 50% of people who have not made preparations for retirement feel anxious about the approaching change, while 95% of people who have planned for retirement in advance are positive and enthusiastic about new life phase.

Our programmes empower participants to play an active role in the process of Preparing for their own Retirement by highlighting and thoroughly discussing the following key aspects:
