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.
