Annuity, Wealth Platform, Property, Cash or red Ferrari?

This week George Osbourne  has given the green light to radical pension changes first announced in the March Budget.

From April 2015 investors will have unprecedented freedom over how they take money from their pensions – they’ll even be able to take the whole fund as cash from age 55. The first 25% should be tax free with the rest subject to income tax.

In my view, this is probably the most important pension news ever. It could affect every pension investor and create huge opportunity for companies wishing to enter the over 55s market.

We will be running a survey next month  to see what people will do with their pension pot. Through digital channels, IFA enquiries  and Market Research interviews the results  / insights will be ‘reported’ through our dashboard portal.

130521_wearable-tech_splash_2

Wearable,  Data Analytics, Dashboards, Digital, Consulting, Biometrics

Wearable & Predictive analytics / Business Intelligence software.

In the near future we will all be wearing smart watches / wearable technology   which will monitor our Biometrics (heart rate, sweat) movement, shopping behaviour, social media habits and workout regimes.

From this Data real time analytics (via a dashboard)  will be able to report on all of these metrics which will be used to reduce life insurance, develop better training methods, assess a sales force, monitor NHS – doctors, nurses and improve processes & look at your shopping behaviour.

It will also help to improve predictive analytics and work out someone’s future buying habits – this is the Utopia for Marketing agents / departments, especially with iBeacon technology – where your IPhone will provide a map of which shop floor  /  Aisle you are on and relevant offers will be sent to your phone…Then pay via your phone….This is the near future.
