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.

Was this advice given, taking due care and diligence? You be the judge
Justice delayed is justice denied. A recent determination, which resulted in the matter being referred to the Tribunal, underlines the validity of this old saying, and lends new credence to the requirement that we should give advice with due care and diligence.
