The race is on: preparing for the end of the lifetime allowance

At the Autumn Statement the government confirmed that it would be scrapping the lifetime allowance from early April, ignoring pleas from the industry for more time to prepare.

So what do advisers, pension providers and platforms have to do now to prepare?

This week FTAdviser news editor Amy Austin is joined by Andrew Tully, technical services director at Nucleus, and Jon Greer, head of retirement policy at Quilter, to find out.

As well as plans for preparing for the change they discuss the consequences of the LTA being scrapped, what clarity is still needed from the government ahead of April 6 and whether this actually makes pensions more complicated.

The FTAdviser Podcast is the podcast for financial advisers, brought to you by FTAdviser. Each week, FTAdviser is joined by guests from the industry to discuss the week in news and pressing industry issues.
