Informed Choice has fully funded its feature-length documentary on the financial planning challenges for the baby boomer generation, which will launch in October.
The firm has raised £3,200 through a crowdfunding campaign to fund the post-production costs of the film, including narration, the soundtrack and rights to use copyrighted materials.
The film, Boom!, will first be screened at the Institute of Financial Planning annual conference on 6 October before its public release in cinemas, online and on DVD during Financial Planning Week in November.
A number of pop-up screenings will also take place during Financial Planning Week, hosted by advisers and providers.
The documentary involves a series of interviews about the ‘baby boomer’ generation entering retirement, including case studies and commentary from industry experts.
Informed Choice managing director Martin Bamford says: “It’s really exciting to see the level of support for this project, with over 50 backers to date, most coming from the financial services community.”
Bamford says the documentary aims to bring financial planning to a wider audience.
