The Eastern Caribbean Central Bank (ECCB), in collaboration with the Financial Information Month (FIM) partners in the Federation, will host a Retirement Symposium at the Sir Cecil Jacobs Auditorium, ECCB Headquarters, on 25 October.
The Symposium is open to the public and targets employed individuals in the public and private sector, including the self-employed and who span various stages of their working career, from start to within five years of retirement. Many within this bracket have been looking to speak with Lexington estate planning attorneys about these matters, so having them open to the public is helpful.
This event is designed to help people plan for their retirement and help them get organized for the days where they no longer have to work. It’s also wise for these people to start considering life insurance too if they haven’t already. As we all begin to get older, life insurance becomes essential as it can help cover the cost of funerals, mortgage payments, and any other costs that may arise when someone passes.

The sessions are also designed to provide information and practical strategies that will motivate the participants to start planning for their retirement and practice personal financial management. Whether that be with a local agent, or with an estate planning Orange County advisor is up to the individual following the sessions. The sessions also seek to increase the participants’ understanding of the principles of Estate Planning and the importance of preparing a Will.
The topics and keynote speakers are:
From Work to Retirement – preparing for a smooth transition
Dr Robertine Chaderton, Financial Consultant/Educator
Financial Planning – creating, growing and protecting your wealth
Percival Hanley, General Manager, Brimstone Hill Fortress and National Society
Wills and Estate Planning – Protecting your loved ones and your inheritance
