How a fund member retires has changed forever...

Legislated in-fund preservation, default annuities and portfolios has broken the compulsion for a fund member to ever leave their fund. Talking to these members, whilst giving sensible counselling - and then professional advice at competitive pricing - requires a financial technology platform of substance.

Benefit consultants, administrators and financial advisors associated with retirement funds will benefit from Altertude, GTC's integrated end-to-end programme providing retirement fund members with all interventions needed in a holistic financial plan.

Contact our CEO Gary Mockler, gmockler@gtc.co.za as to how GTC can assist in growing your business.

IN LIGHTER WYN
A thew thunnies
When one door closes and another door opens, you are probably in prison.

"Drink responsibly" means don't spill it.

Age 60 might be the new 40, but 9:00pm is the new midnight.

The older I get, the earlier it gets late.

When I say, "The other day," I could be referring to any time between yesterday and 15 years ago.

Cop: "Please step out of the car. "Me: "I'm too drunk. You get in."

I remember being able to get up without making sound effects.

(Thanks, Roche Cowley)
