Financial Education

As the retirement space becomes increasingly complicated, employees will turn to their employer for guidance. We believe that the more knowledge people have (and confidence with their finances) the more engaged they will be with their employee benefits.

Why financial education?

Financial education can make a tangible difference to your workforce.

Wren Sterling’s experienced advisers are there to guide your employees and help them make good financial decisions, through a coordinated financial education programme. There’s also access to our telephone financial planning team for your employees and directors with more complex financial arrangements can count on the expertise of our private client team.

We’ll analyse the demographic of your workforce, benchmarking you against your peers and review your existing arrangements to determine their suitability.

Working alongside you, we can run a bespoke communication program to ensure your employees understand the importance of retirement planning, whilst at the same time valuing the financial commitment made by their employer in helping to achieve their goals in retirement.

We do this through a variety of communication channels;

  • Seminars / webinars
  • Workshops
  • Lunch & learn sessions
  • 1:1s
  • Telephone helplines

We understand that pensions and workplace benefits can appear confusing, which is why we cut through the jargon and ensure all of our employee communication are delivered in a language that’s easy to understand.
