At Aegon, we’re taking part in Talk Money Week an annual campaign, run by the Money and Pension Service (MaPS), which launches on the 9th November 2020.

Talk Money Week aims to help improve people’s financial wellbeing, so you and your clients may be interested in joining – to talk all things money.

When we talk about financial wellbeing, we refer to how people feel about the control they have over their financial future – and their relationship with money. That includes their ability to respond to financial unpredictability and unexpected expenses.

People with healthy financial wellbeing can meet their long-term financial goals and make informed choices that allow them to enjoy a meaningful life – both now and in retirement.

From the 9 November we’ll be talking about:

  • Getting your affairs in order – hints and tips to help customers take control of their savings to help start them on the path to a lifetime of financial security.
  • Financial wellbeing – showcasing the positive effects financial advice has on financial wellbeing, by contrasting the long-term outlooks of people who have had financial advice versus those that haven’t.
  • Pension scams – highlighting what to look out for and how to protect yourself and your clients from illegal activities.
  • Advice makes sense – uncovering the common misconceptions people have about getting advice.

MaPS have also provided helpful guides on how to start conversations about money such as, talking about money with friends and family, protection against financial abuse and how to overcome money problems and poor mental wellbeing. You may find these guides useful or you may wish to share them with your clients.

By having these conversations, your clients could feel more confident with managing their savings and it might bring some peace of mind especially during these challenging times.

Make sure you look out for our social media posts to find all the content you need – and you can also join in the conversation by using #TalkMoney.
