    Why is retirement planning seemingly so hard to get right?

    Why aren’t retirees “shopping around” for the best retirement options, or reaching out for help?

    And why are so many making poor decisions or - even worse - getting scammed out of their retirement savings?

    Aspire to Retire's mission is to help everyone leave the workplace when they want, how they want and to enjoy fulfilled lives in retirement, free from financial stress. Watch our webinar to find out how we do it.

    DB Schemes: new solutions supporting your endgame

    This 1 hour webinar will explore the new avenues open to Defined Benefit pension schemes as they progress towards their end game.

    Punter Southall are hosting the webinar and will be joined by Matt Cooper, Consolidation Market Lead at PwC, Simon True, CEO at Clara Pensions and Richard Jones MD at Pension Safeguard Solution. We will provide an overview of the alternative risk transfer market and how it has developed over the recent past and then drill into how superfunds and capital backed journey plan solutions can support schemes to achieve their final goal.

    The webinar is open to all stakeholders involved in running defined benefit pension schemes and whilst we invite delegates to submit questions in advance for this session, there will be opportunity to ask questions on the day.
