Week 3: What’s on offer? The marketplace and current issues
Last week it was about players in marketplace – the financial firms and the regulators – and the issues, challenges and changes they are currently experiencing.
This week you will focus on the financial products in the marketplace and at the developments taking place in these – like the growth of the equity release market and the pensions revolution in the UK. You will look at the financial firms to go to for the products and the risks associated with them. You will also look at the factors that you should apply to your decisions about financial products by using a four-stage decision-making model.
The marketplace is changing – let’s have a look at what is on offer.
