While much of the industry’s focus is on the accumulation of wealth, a lot less is on the decumulation phase where the shift for many investors moves towards a requirement for income. The days of having a portfolio split of your age in bonds with the rest in equities to produce a decent income is long gone. But how should investors and their professional advisers look at this challenge and what is the greatest threat to a steady income stream in retirement?

This webinar will feature one of the UK’s leading academics from Cass Business school who has some clear views and potential solutions to these issues. He will be joined by a leading global equity income manager from a specialist boutique and the CIO of one of the UK’s leading multi-family offices which plans inter-generational income strategies.

The session will last 45 minutes providing the audience with the chance to ask questions of the panel. It will qualify for CPD.
