Week in review: Friday 26th June 2015
With a heatwave expected for the south of England next week, the Informed Choice team will be making the most of the summer sunshine this weekend.
This week we’ve been writing about our contribution to Cranleigh in Bloom, whether cash is really king in retirement, how older people use public transport, and a generation gap emerging when it comes to retirement income expectations.
Andy writes about our support for Cranleigh in Bloom this year, which is adding colour to the village while also creating a link between our office at Sundial House and the Cranleigh Village Hall.
Nick looks at the latest figures which suggest people have not been drawing loads of cash out of their pension pots following the introduction of new pension freedoms in April.
Martin writes about the public transport challenges faced by older people, based on new research from The International Longevity Centre and Age UK.
A generation gap is emerging when it comes to expectations of an income in retirement, according to this new research from Prudential.
This week in episode 29 of the Informed Choice Podcast, Martin talks about how private wealth managers are shunning the moderately rich, why Britain’s ageing population will ruin the budget surplus plan, and how a new blood test could pick up the early signs of dementia.
Martin shares his top tips in The Sunday Times on budgeting for recent graduates.
In his latest column for Money Marketing, Martin writes about taking offence and the right response to provocative commentary.
