COVID-19: Market movement, behavioural bias & the future of retirement income

Presented by

Dan Russell, MD, SimplyBiz, John Roe, Head of Multi-Asset Funds, LGIM and Jon Scannell, Distribution Director, LGRI

About this talk

The last three months have ushered in a significant period of change, as well as uncertainty. Markets have fluctuated, more than a quarter of the UK workers are currently furloughed, the newspapers carry stories of retirements being delayed and house prices dropping at the fastest rate since the financial crisis in February 2009. Only time will tell what the lasting impacts of this pandemic may be. Join us for a 45-minute live stream with our host Andy Powell, Strategic Account Manager, Retirement Income, Legal & General and a panel of experts as we’ll be asking: • What emerging trends are surfacing as a result of the pandemic? • How does increased market uncertainty trigger behavioural biases? And what can you do about it? • How will COVID-19 shape the future of retirement planning? Uncertainty may result in a call for greater security and we’ll explore the increasing need for certainty of income in retirement portfolios and the importance of financial advice. We are delighted to be joined by Dan Russell, Managing Director, SimplyBiz Investment Services, John Roe, Head of Multi-Asset Funds, Legal & General Investment Management (LGIM) and Jon Scannell, Distribution Director, Retirement Income, Legal & General. For advisers only.
