Retire Right, the definitive guide to retirement and retirement planning in South Africa, has been rewritten and updated as The Ultimate Guide to Retirement in South Africa and is now available in bookstores and online as an eBook.

The Ultimate Guide to Retirement in South Africa is written by authors Bruce Cameron, the retired editor of Personal Finance and author of Retire Right, and Wouter Fourie CFP®, the 2015/2016 FPI Financial Planner of the Year and a Director of the Financial Planning Institute and CEO of Ascor™ Independent Wealth Managers.

“The Ultimate Guide to Retirement in South Africa combines insight into all of the aspects of retirement, including the preparations and planning, the psychological aspects and the detailed legal and administrative considerations that you have to keep in mind,” says Cameron. “As such, the book is a helpful guide to anyone planning for retirement and retirees seeking the best possible guidance on their life savings.”

Since introducing the book in June 2018, the first imprint of 7 000 copies has been sold out, making The Ultimate Guide a national best-seller. The publisher, Zebra Press, has since printed a second consignment, which is now available.

The Ultimate Guide covers a myriad of topics and is arguably the most comprehensive book of its kind on retirement yet to be published in South Africa. Topics include discretionary investment products, buying a pension, civil service pensions, women and retirement, estate planning, the psychology of retirement, social grants, tax and healthcare in retirement.

“We wrote the book to be helpful to people in different stages of their lives and to people with different types of pensions. We also addressed many of the spoken and unspoken assumptions about retirement planning and about receiving financial guidance,” says Fourie.

The Ultimate Guide to Retirement in South Africa features a foreword by Minister Pravin Gordhan, in which he highlights the many recent changes in pension regulations and references recent research that shows that people often do not have enough information available to enable them to make the right decisions at and after retirement. The book provides comprehensive guidance and even identifies warnings on pitfalls one needs to avoid.

The Ultimate Guide to Retirement in South Africa has been recognised by the Financial Planning Institute (FPI) for the quality of the content and has approved the book as an FPI Recognised Publication for CPD purposes for financial advisors and planners.
