Featured topic:  Useful tips for preparing for retirement as you head into your 50s

Kids finished school? No more school fees to pay? Maybe you’ve come into a windfall. Or you’ve been promoted and have a little bit of extra cash coming in the door. It’s what often happens as people head into their late 40s and 50s.

It’s a great time to rethink savings for retirement. 

A lack of school fees or bigger pay packet can mean more disposable income. Kids leaving home could lower food bills and utility costs. Maybe you don't need the big house anymore and can free up extra cash.

These years are an opportunity for people to get on the front foot ahead of retirement. They can make a considerable difference to the amount a person has when they finish work.

BT’s tipsheet “How to prepare for retirement as you head into your 50s” provides practical and easy to understand tips on what you should think about to better prepare for retirement, particularly if family outgoings have decreased, or incomings have increased.

The tipsheet provides an overview of smart ways to put more into retirement, better providing for the years after work. 

How does it work?

Each month, we will prepare and deliver this content to you in a user-friendly, digital format.

You can then distribute this to your clients as you see fit, either as part of your regular communication or as an additional resource. You can save time by using the client communication template we provide alongside the monthly content.

This will not only enrich your clients' knowledge but will also save you time and effort in explaining these concepts.

How does it benefit you?

This service is designed to make your job easier and increase your clients' satisfaction:

1. Enhanced client engagement
Sparking meaningful conversations about your clients' financial goals and understanding.

2. Time-saving
Spending less time explaining basic concepts and more time on personalised advice and strategy.

3. Value addition
Demonstrating your commitment to your clients' financial literacy and well-being.

We believe this will help to strengthen the bonds between you and your clients and reinforce the value you provide as their trusted financial adviser.
