A leading corporate trustee, Axis Pension Trust Limited, held the third edition of its Annual Pre-Retirement Seminar in Accra. The event, which was the first of its kind at the time of introduction, is inspired by the mission of the organization to empower the Ghanaian worker to retire with dignity.
The seminar brought together experienced and well-resourced experts to discuss various topics related to retirement needs, namely; Health in retirement, what to expect at retirement, accessing your benefits from the various schemes and how to make your retirement income last longer.
Speaking at the seminar the Chief Executive Officer of Axis Pension Trust, Afriyie Oware, stated that offering superior value and peace of mind to clients is at the heart of Axis’ operations and for this reason Axis boasts of many industry firsts. Axis Pension Trust is the first Pensions provider to offer free embedded life insurance cover to its Master Trust and personal pension schemes. This adds an additional layer of cushioning for scheme members and their beneficiaries.
As income inequality widens in society and graduate unemployment increases, the Ghanaian retiree today bears a greater burden in sustaining families. This underscores the objective of Axis to empower each client with adequate knowledge and resources to become the Axis Retiree, distinguished in every aspect from other retirees.
The Axis Retirement Annuity Plan, which is a programmed withdrawal arrangement, provides a robust solution to help retirees prudently manage their retirement savings to last you longer.
Mimi Anane-Appiah, Head of the Financial Planning unit at Axis, emphasized the need for retirees to utilize a solution such as the Axis Retirement Annuity Plan to create an additional stream of regular income, manage the shortfalls in retirement income and ensure steady growth of initial lump sum amount.
