What do you do?

I wear two hats:

  • 1- I run www.retirement-iq.co.uk (this website) which provide clear and easy to understand information about the new pension freedoms for both financial advisers and individual clients.
  • 2- I give regulated financial advice on all aspects of annuities and pension drawdown as an adviser with Better Retirement

How can Retirement IQ help financial advisers?

My philosophy is that I cannot tell advisers how to run their businesses or how to give advice but I can share my many years’ experience to help advisers get better outcomes for their clients and improve their advice process.

I can help advisers in the following ways

  • Giving free access to my annuity and drawdown calculators – my unique annuity charts are amongst the popular pages - Go to charts and calculators
  • Providing the UK’s only online marketplace of retirement income solutions – this is a valuable research tool - Go to the marketplace
  • Publishing adviser specific guides - Go to the library

Can you help me with specific questions or client cases?

Yes I will be pleased to help. Just email or phone me - contact me

Do you run training courses for advisers?

Yes I have some really good training material including my popular ‘skills of the trade’ presentation. Skills of the trade
