Billy Burrows makes return to advice

Billy Burrows has begun advising clients again after returning to his old firm firm Better Retirement.

He has also launched a new information website for clients and advisers with free guides and a range of annuity and drawdown calculators and charts.

Better Retirement has been advising those nearing and in retirement for 25 years and Mr Burrows was a director until 2012.

However from June 2014 to May 2015, Mr Burrows worked at equity release and retirement adviser Key Retirement Solutions, as associate director.

He said: “After a three-year break from advising clients I am looking forward to doing my bit to help fill the advice gap.

“There are now so many important decisions to be made when converting pension pots into cash or income that most people simply cannot make the right decisions without getting proper advice.”

Mr Burrows will advise clients on all aspects of annuity and drawdown including fixed term income plans, new blended solutions and guaranteed drawdown solutions.

In order to join Better Retirement he had to be re-authorised as an adviser by the Financial Conduct Authority.

Stuart Bayliss, chairman of Better Retirement, said: “I welcome him back as an adviser with Better Retirement because together we can help plug the gap for specialist and affordable retirement advice.

“The decision whether to purchase an annuity or invest in pension drawdown is one of the most complicated in personal finance and few firms have our combined expertise and specialist knowledge in this area.”
