This podcast is all about the "fascinating" subject of transfers from Defined Benefit (aka Final Salary) Pension Schemes. Perhaps not usually the most riveting of subjects, however, in all seriousness it's a hot topic at the moment with plenty of pitfalls and a big issue for those with this type of pension. Even if you don't have one of these pensions we recommend you listen to hear about what good practice should look like when it comes to financial advice. Join Chris, David and Producer Tommo as they go through the pros, cons and things to look out for with transfers from DB Schemes.

Our relationship with and our emotions towards money have a big impact. Whether that be our stress levels, how we live our lives and the options that are available to us. This is an area we delved in to in Episode 10 “Financial Options in Life” and is discussed further in this episode with our guest Simonne Gnessen.
