The financial frontier?
Haywards Heath IFA shows Generation X-ers how they can ‘Live Long and Prosper’
Reaching a ripe old age in financial security is one of the biggest challenges facing 40 – 60 something year olds. Labelled ‘Generation X’, this sandwich generation is feeling under pressure; still responsible for their adult children who are calling on the bank of mum and dad, while also often meeting care costs for elderly parents.
The fear is there simply won’t be enough financial filling left to fund their own retirement but according to Sussex IFA Mike Oliver Associates, we can all live long and prosper!
To celebrate 15 years in business, the IFA has brought together a galaxy of experts in later life financial planning and wellbeing for a free, ‘Live Long and Prosper’ seminar in Haywards Heath on Thursday February 9.
Addressing both physical and financial health issues, the seminar will cover a wide range of topics from pension and investment choices to asset protection and estate planning.
“Not only are interest rates for savings at an all-time low, but there is also a lot of confusion around the new pension freedoms and concern that people might make some costly mistakes,” says the firm’s founder and principal, Mike Oliver.
“The expectation is to have more disposable income in later life but it’s possible that this generation will be entering retirement still looking after their own parents as well as their children.
“We hope the seminar will help people explore some of these issues and reassure them that, with the right information and advice, it is possible to enjoy the good life and be financially secure in retirement.”
The ‘Live Long and Prosper’ seminar takes place on February 9, 2017 at Côte Brasserie, The Broadway, Haywards Heath from 5pm to 7pm, and will include short presentations followed by questions to the panel, with a chance to chat informally to them over refreshments.
Entry is free, but places must be booked. Contact email@example.com or call 01444 235475.
"Regular, well organised events, excellent updates and information by email along with a warm welcome from the Chair and Coordinator are just some of the positives at BHBPA."
"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
"As the local hospice for the area, it’s great that we receive so much support from the BHBPA. Last year the members raised an amazing £2150 through activities such as Bake Off and the BHBiz Awards. Each well planned members meeting enables good networking opportunities and speakers that are relevant to the present climate and local issues. We are proud to be members of BHBPA."
"“I have belonged to this group since I started my own business, Lea Graham Associates, in 1986. The association has been through several incarnations since then, but its most recent one, BHBPA, is by far the best.
It’s much more than just a networking group, although it is supremely good at that too. BHBPA is inclusive and friendly and acts like a mutual-support society. The events are stimulating, worthwhile and often great fun and I believe most members share this opinion.”"
