Media Release: Aegon’s new podcasts explore current challenges and opportunities for advisers

AEGON has produced a series of short audio podcasts to support advisers, by exploring the current challenges faced in the market and to identify ways in which they can maximise opportunities available to them going forward.

The audio podcasts follow on from a series of adviser roadshows held throughout February and March in which experts from AEGON explored the current challenges facing advisers from legislative and regulatory developments including Pensions reform.

The audio podcasts provide an insight and overview of the UK economy, with commentary on what global and local economic change will mean for financial advice in the UK from investment experts across AEGON Asset Management.

Advisers can also find out how they can help their clients make the most of the upcoming changes from Pensions reform in the UK and a our team of technical experts explain tax planning angles for their clients in light of these legislative changes.

Duncan Jarrett, sales director at AEGON, said:

“The demand for our roadshows has been extremely positive, with over 750 advisers attending throughout February and March.

“In response to this demand we have taken the step to produce a series of free online audio podcasts so those advisers who could not attend can still receive this valuable information free of charge and at the touch of a button.”

The free podcasts can be downloaded at:
