“As the retirement industry heads into the pension phase, I believe this calls for investment professionals who are both technically well equipped and creative to bring forward pension solutions.
I chose the Retirement Outcomes specialisation for this reason – it covers a broad base that is tuned to better understanding the retirement industry and the issues that it faces."
