John Hancock Financial Network introduced Wednesday the Retirement Ready iPad app, an interactive tool designed to help financial professionals engage prospects and clients in an educational retirement income conversation.
The app, which is customizable to display the representative’s name and firm, includes information on the basic concepts of retirement income in distinct chapters, videos, exercises and interactive worksheets.
“Retirement income planning is a huge need for a significant portion of the population, and this tool is perfect for assisting a financial professional to have a personal, engaging, and useful discussion about retirement income with clients,” said Bruce Harrington, vice president, Sales and Business Development, John Hancock Financial Network (JHFN).
The content covers the client’s personal vision of retirement, the differences between the accumulation and distribution phases of life, detail on some of the key risks in retirement including longevity, market volatility and inflation, and creating a sustainable retirement income using a product allocation approach.
The Retirement Ready app is available now in the iTunes App store. General educational content will be available to the public while the interactive tools will be accessible only to JHFN representatives.
