PENSIONS IN THE PANDEMIC MASTERCLASS FOR ADVISERS – Ros chaired an AssetTV Masterclass on Retirement Income during the pandemic – with three experts on the panel – Alistair McQueen of Aviva, Kirsty Anderson of Prudential and Andrew Tully of Canada Life.
Financial Times quotes Ros in an article exploring the impact of Covid19 on retirement plans and she calls for early access to State Pension if people genuinely cannot work any longer.
Ros is quoted in Daily Mail and MailonLine regretting the ongoing encouragement of hospitals to discharge Covid patients into care homes. Also calling for residents to be allowed to see their relatives as depriving families of visiting rights can have serious negative impacts on health. ( link to pdf )
Daily Express quoted Ros commenting on worrying sharp rise in complaints by care staff about safety in the Covid-19 crisis. Expecting care homes to act like hospitals is unreasonable, forcing them to try to do so without adequate PPE or medical staff is a recipe for disaster.
The Daily Mirror quotes Ros in its article exploring whether people in their 50s and 60s will be poorer in retirement as a result of the Covid-19 crisis.
