It’s not a time to Retire. It’s a time to Regenerate.

Retirement is being redefined. It’s no longer about surrendering to a slower, more leisurely lifestyle. It’s a new phase, a chance to make discovery, creativity and exploration a matter of choice. Not an exception to the rule. Be prepared to meet these new realities with new thinking and new conversations.

Regeneration is just that: a fresh way of exploring how to plan and think about retirement.
