Capital Group’s, Mike Van Wyk, joins us to speak on how today’s retirees are redefining the retirement stage of life. In-depth research on today’s retirees reveals that they are in the midst of a dynamic life transition, when personal identity, lifestyle, relationships and sense of purpose are in flux. This brings a liberating sense of discovery and experimentation, but also means that priorities and “well-made plans” are likely to shift. Today’s retirees are seeking guidance on the financial implications of these shifts, wisdom, security and growth-supportive guidance from their financial professionals.
