Retirement Sentiment Index: Surviving Market Volatility
Retirement Sentiment Index
Retirement Advantage
Apr 2018 United Kingdom Longevity, Pensioners & Retirement, Savings
Retirement Advantage has published the latest edition of its Retirement Sentiment Index report series, revealing a significant shift in the attitudes of over 50s towards financial risk and flexibility in response to market volatility. The report shows a decline in the proportion of over 50s who view flexibility as an important factor when thinking about their retirement income from 36% in June 2017 to 28% in March 2018, while the percentage of respondents that valued certainty remained stable over the same period. According to the company's findings over 50s are also significantly underestimating their life expectancy, which it warns could leave retirees in a difficult financial position later in life as their pension pots become overstretched.
