In this year’s Women and Retirement Report we find out that women want face to face guidance and information about retirement planning and saving. Also, that whilst only 9% of women have a financial adviser, 34% would be prepared to pay for financial advice around pensions. Use the insights in the Report to help build your business.
Although the number of women saving adequately for retirement has risen 2% to 52% in the last year, the report reveals some striking facts about women’s savings for retirement and their understanding of pensions.
Automatic enrolment has undoubtedly helped more women to save more for their retirement. However, there is still a very sizeable gap between men and women's pension savings.
Scottish Widows has been following trends in this area for 11 years, and selected a small number of experts to present our latest Women & Retirement Report findings.
Guests were asked two key questions:
- What do you think is the main reason women save less into their pension than men?
- How do you think the Pensions Industry and Government can solve this problem?
Watch the videos now to hear their expert opinions.
