MANAMA: Takaud, a specialist provider of savings, investment and pension solutions for the Mena region, will carry out an educational roadshow on retirement planning at national carrier Gulf Air’s headquarters from September 17 to 20.
The roadshow, conducted for Gulf Air employees, will feature new financial education tools on how much each individual needs to save for retirement and will provide information on how to save for the long term.
The roadshow will include a raffle, offering all Gulf Air employees who visit the Takaud stand a chance to win valuable prizes, said a statement.
Jonathan Kemp, Takaud’s chief actuary, said: “Takaud’s goal is to encourage everyone to save for their future and we have developed the educational tools people need to make informed decisions easily.
“Working towards one’s own financial security is essential for everyone, and at TAKAUD we’ve made sure that the process of starting a savings plan not only meets local needs but is also as simple and flexible as possible,” he said.
From its Bahrain hub, Takaud has developed unique expertise across the Mena region in providing group and individual pension plans with new technologies and high-quality investment options. By developing its own actuarially sound and user-friendly tools that make planning for a comfortable retirement an easy task, Takaud’s pension solutions address the needs of individual clients, as well as SMEs and corporations.
Takaud’s savings plans are distinguished by 24/7 online accessibility, a comprehensive choice of investments (conventional and Shariah-Compliant) and the international portability that is so important to employees of large organisations such as Gulf Air and others throughout the GCC and Mena regions, it said.
The roadshow will be held on the Ground Floor level, Wing A of Gulf Air’s Muharraq headquarters during office hours.
