Sigma Pensions seeks early retirement plans among youths
Sigma Pensions, a Pension Funds Administrator (PFA), has called on Nigerian youths to make early plans for their retirement, and save towards it.
Specifically, Head of Risk Management, Sigma Pensions, Paula Benedict, said it was the right time for youths to save as much as possible for their retirement, and urged those who don’t have pension accounts to set retirement goals.
Speaking during a webinar on Financial Literacy for Youths, organised by the PFA in collaboration with Junior Achievement Nigeria (JAN), themed: ‘Break Free’, she urged youths who have pension accounts to keenly monitor the progress of their funds and see how it’s been managed.
“You need people that would put your interest before theirs. We take decisions that are collectively beneficial and have a blend of experience and young dynamic workforce.
“We are an innovative company, technologically driven and have a highly graded investment team. The crop in our investment department, dedicated relationship managers and of course competitive returns is important to pensions,” she said.
In her remarks, Unit Head, Brand and Marketing Communications, Sigma Pensions, Yetunde Adebiyi, said the webinar was aimed to help youths take charge of their lives and finances, noting that the PFA seeks to guide people on their finances and savings for a prosperous retirement.
Meanwhile, speaking on the trend of people leaving the country in search of greener pastures, founder, Twelve Vest, Tomie Balogun, urged the youths to take advantage of the opportunities in Nigeria today.
“Set goals, plan a budget and make investment a bill. Time is limited so you have to put your money to work in a way your income is growing and making additional income for you,” she said.
Also, Head, Business Development, Piggyvest, Ayo Akinola, who spoke on the opportunities in the country, urged youths to leverage technology in managing their personal finances and retirement plan, and commit to investments.
