LV= announces pension seminars for advisers

Press release: 10/09/2013

Retirement specialist LV= is hosting 42 pension seminars during October providing advisers with in-depth information on the forthcoming pension legislation changes, and what it means for them and their clients.

The sessions, which run from 1 October until 29 October, will focus on the changes to the lifetime allowance, and how advisers can help clients with pension savings worth more than £1.25m. Other topics that will also be addressed include pension splitting, pension input periods, contribution limits and the challenges to modern retirement advice.

Steve Lewis, LV= Head of Retirement Distribution, said: “Forthcoming pension changes, such as the new lifetime allowance, are likely to impact on many people’s retirement planning strategy. Our seminars have been devised to help advisers understand how their clients’ pension plans could be affected and how best to navigate the potential risks, so that they can advise their clients accordingly."

“This will be the largest programme of seminars we have ever delivered and demonstrates our commitment to the adviser community.”

Advisers who attend these seminars will be invited to join LV=’s retirement market masterclass programme which will start in November.

LV= employs over 5700 people and serves over five million customers with a range of financial products. We are the UK’s largest friendly society and a leading financial mutual.

When we started in 1843 our goal was to give financial security to more than just a privileged few and for many decades we were most commonly associated with providing a method of saving to people of modest means. Today we follow a similar purpose, helping people to protect and provide for the things they love, although on a much larger scale and through a wide range of financial services including insurance, investment and retirement products.

We offer our services direct to consumers, as well as through IFAs and brokers, and through strategic partnerships with organisations such as ASDA, Nationwide Building Society and a range of trade unions.
