Papers published on new opportunities in retirement market

Advisers who are keen to work in the retirement income market can now access a series of in-depth papers focusing on the rapid changes taking place and future business potential.

The papers, produced by Retirement Partnership as part of its Offer More Options campaign, deliver background information, tools and practical support for financial advisers seeking a full understanding of the evolving market and how new innovations are being introduced to meet the needs of ‘baby boomer’ clients as they approach their retirement.

The first paper, commissioned by Living Time, focuses on the ‘perfect storm’ facing the industry, the combination of increasing numbers of retirees, lengthening life expectancy and the risks from inflation. The second and third papers examine why change in the industry needs to happen and how advisers can adapt their current business structures to grasp the opportunities presented.
