May 3, 2014

MICHELLE Borthwick from Edinburgh has a background in financial services as well as online banking.

She was invited by

Aegon to join a trial of its Retiready platform ahead of the launch.

"It gets you through the sort of decision process you might need to make by trying to gauge your appropriate risk level and where you are with your investments," she says.

"I have got quite a lot of pensions from different employers,and having something that is online will make me a lot more aware of doing something about that.

"For someone like myself it is difficult to work out how much I am going to end up with and having some kind of calculation."

Aegon'sDavid Macmillan says the system has been running 'live' for the group's 2000 Edinburgh employees, adding: "I have never seen that done anywhere else, and the feedback and intensity of engagement was brilliant to see."
