PPI Refunds: Alternative retirement plans 'are being made'

Payment protection refunds could be an effective way to supplement a person's retirement plans.

Many people have to find alternative investment strategies as their pensions are not yielding as much as they previously believed, Billy MacKay, marketing director at A J Bell, told the Financial Times.

Mr MacKay said people near retirement age are currently revising their income strategy or waiting until better fiscal conditions return.

"The challenge is a combination of a number of factors that have come together at a single time that has driven income levels down and the maximum income figure down," he stated.

Mr MacKay explained that the economic climate has reduced gilt yields to a new low and that was compounded by extremely volatile financial markets that made investing tricky.

Many people were seeing their potential pension earnings fall by up to 40 per cent, he added.

A J Bell has more than 55,000 clients and manages assets worth £15.1 million.
