Helping you take control of your financial future

Finances

Understanding your finances and making financial plans for your future can sometimes be daunting and easy to neglect with busy work and home schedules. However, it’s important to take control and put plans in place, whatever age or career stage you’re at.

Finance and pensions are usually fairly dry topics but the presenter delivered this in a way that held our attention and readily answered queries.

Feedback from attendee

To help you take control of your financial future, the University is continuing to run a series of free financial and pension education seminars which provide information about the University’s pension schemes and broader financial topics including savings and investments, mortgages and debt, estate planning and tax efficiency.

The seminars are delivered by experts from specialist financial education provider, Wealth at Work, and continue to receive excellent feedback from attendees.

There are different seminars to choose from depending on what stage of your career you are at and which pension scheme you are contributing to. You can currently book on seminars scheduled for October and November, but more are scheduled for the New Year.

Feedback from colleagues:

This session was very informative and has helped focus my mind on my Finances.

Have come away from today’s session with lots of useful advice and a list of tasks I need to complete!

Engaging presentation. I really appreciated the explanation of how pensions are calculated. I had no clue about this before the event.

Really useful to have all this clarified, to be able to ask questions and that it was tailored to our circumstances. Good to stop and reflect on finances.

Very approachable, friendly, knowledgeable and clear presenter.

Very informative. Liked everyday examples given to make more understandable.

Good sense of humour to liven up a dull subject!

A very informative session. Enough information was provided without getting confusing. Really beneficial.
