Seminar Overview

The UK’s 2015 pensions reform opened the floodgates for dozens of new retirement products to enter the market, often confusing retirees who just want to source thirty years of adequate income. With over 700 mixed asset investments to choose from in today’s market, Ninety One’s Retirement Solution checklist is often cited as an independent aid to help advisers plan a resilient long-term income stream to meet clients’ spending needs in retirement. There is often a mismatch between what a client specifically requires and what a product can actually deliver. Too defensive an approach can eat away at the overall pot, as can adding too much volatility. Is there a balance that can be struck? With the FCA’s long awaited suitability review of retirement advice likely to take place this year (Suitability 2), Ninety One will share their forward-looking view on what to consider in a decumulation strategy, that will help advisers evidence best practice to the regulator.

Learning Objectives

  1. Explain the relationship between assets, income and retirement goals
  2. Be able to describe and challenge the consensus of lifestyle strategies and outline the importance of growth in decumulation
  3. Identify that lower volatility is hidden alpha in decumulation strategies
