What does the Autumn Statement mean for advisers?

Last week's Autumn Statement saw a whole host of tax thresholds either frozen or cut as chancellor Jeremy Hunt attempted to plug a fiscal black hole of about £55bn - but the triple lock was maintained, leading to the state pension's biggest ever increase.

FTAdviser deputy editor Damian Fantato is joined by Laura Suter, head of personal finance at AJ Bell, Tim Morris, independent financial adviser Russell & Co, and Alex Shields, chartered financial planner at The Private Office, to discuss the financial planning implications.

They discuss how the frozen tax thresholds give plenty of food for thought to those in retirement, how the cost of living is affecting financial planning and they discuss whether there was any good news in last week's Autumn Statement.
