Park Row to launch pre-retirement programme

Park Row is partnering with international business school Ashridge to develop a pre-retirement programme for senior business executives.

The sessions will cover retirement issues such as adjusting to the change, retirement income options, tax and estate planning and financial and investment planning in retirement. The programme also looks at health and well-being and full fitness assessments will be undertaken by fully qualified staff.

Park Row will hold the seminars, taking place at Ashridge. Dates are currently booked for February 15 to 17, May 5 to 7, September 15 to 17, November 24 to 26.

Park Row Corporate & Private Clients southern regional sales manager Mike Baggaley says: There are several companies currently offering pre-retirement programmes, but the programmes vary enormously in quality. Park Row is as committed to continued education as Ashridge, so together we are in a strong position to ensure that people attending the courses receive advice and assistance of the highest quality in terms of both content and presentation. We have several courses already booked for 2006, and will be planning more.
