Over a 100 people attended a recent retirement seminar in Kāpiti led by local financial planner Liz Koh along with well-known economist, Bernard Hickey; and Lifetime CEO, Ralph Stewart.
Lifetime is touring New Zealand this March and there have been large audiences at the South Island venues as well as Wellington, the Hutt Valley and Kāpiti. The tour resumes next week in the North Island.
The Speakers gave retirees practical advice on ways to effectively manage their money through retirement. They talked about some of the key financial risks that retirees face and how to ensure your nest egg lasts as long as you do.
Last year over 2,000 people attended these seminars. The seminars are free but spaces are limited.
Liz Koh says anyone who missed out on the seminar should feel free to contact her for more information at [email protected]
