Empowering Informed Financial Decisions

We are delighted to welcome you to our first iWIN Breakfast Forum of 2019, in partnership with the Chartered Insurance Institute and hosted by SCOR SE. During this Forum we will be considering key financial planning topics that will be of specific interest to women, but also for people in general.

We will be discussing the impact on retirement planning when taking a career break to raise a family or when you need to act as a carer. And to understand what decisions could be made regarding your personal financial planning regarding savings, investments, tax and retirement.

Speaker, Vanessa Barnes, will look at the reasons why pension planning goes wrong, whether they represent good value for money, and what a “good” pension looks like.
