Making sure your clients have enough income to support their needs and aspirations in retirement is never straight forward. For many, this challenge has become more acute with the squeeze on many traditional income streams. New pension rules and greater flexibility around the options at retirement mean income investments could help your clients realise their goals.
Even with a healthy pot of hard-earned savings, a combination of historically low interest rates, resurgent inflation and market uncertainty mean income-generating assets can play a valuable role as part of a client’s diversified portfolio.
The core challenge for advisers today is to ensure your clients can take an income today without compromising the income they can take tomorrow. M&G has a range of funds that can offer solutions to the income challenges that your clients may face in retirement.
Please note, the value of investments will fluctuate, which will cause fund prices to fall as well as rise and investors may not get back the original amount invested.
