Surrey-based IFA Wentworth Rose is linking up with personal finance

website Interactive Investor International to provide retirement

primarily at savers aged 50 and over who are approaching retirement and may

be unsure of their best course of action.

planning is one of the most complex areas, where any wrong decision can

leave investors out of pocket for the rest of their lives. He says: “With

Wentworth Rose, we can now provide a truly interactive service to provide

expert advice in this complex area.”
