If you’ve already retired, you might want to start with “Drawdown Review”. This box set covers all the key considerations you need to think about, including how your money is invested and how much you can sustainably withdraw each year.

Why having access to these videos and this knowledge is important
Gaining a better understanding of financial subjects can benefit your overall mental wellbeing.
A recent study by Royal London found evidence that working with a financial planner helps you to boost your knowledge and gain a better understanding of your finances – particularly when it comes to protection and retirement planning.
In the research, the insurer found that people who work with a planner feel they have a significantly better grasp of products and financial matters, compared with people who don’t have an adviser.
The research also found that people who work with a planner and who have access to financial expertise feel more confident about their financial plan.
More than a third (34%) of people who work with a planner say they feel more confident. This figure rises to almost three in five people (58%) who work with a planner on an ongoing basis.
It’s clear that better financial knowledge and having access to expertise has positive mental health benefits. So, to get a better grip on the issues that affect you, head to our videos page now, sit back, and enjoy some of the great content.
