Discovery: Helping to close the retirement savings gap. 


The global retirement savings gap is expected to grow to $400 trillion* in 2050, due to three main reasons: people are living longer, saving insufficiently for retirement, and withdrawing from their retirement savings when changing jobs.

Encouraging the right savings behaviours can dramatically reduce the retirement savings gap.

 

That’s why our retirement solutions drive positive savings behaviour by motivating employees to save more, save for longer, and manage their finances.

 

We are then able to reward their behaviour by adding boosts to their savings, helping them to close their retirement savings gap.

Mentenova

4 Feb 2022 - 4 Feb 2023

Mentenova, directly translated to mean ‘new mind’, is an award-winning financial services company that is synonymous with innovation, independence, excellence, integrity and long-term partnerships.

 

Since our founding in 2012, Mentenova has been at the forefront of innovation in the financial services industry. We were the first to launch a member-focused retirement consultancy model that focuses on the needs of the individual members of the retirement fund as opposed to typical blanket strategies built to suit the average member.

 

This new way of ensuring better outcomes for each member of the retirement fund quickly attracted industry attention and only 3 years after opening our doors, Mentenova received the Investment / Asset Consultant of the Year award, presented by the Council of Retirement Funds, BATSETA.

 

Our investment strategists continuously research local and global investment trends and economic developments and we offer tailor-made investment services that assist our clients in achieving their investment objectives with the highest level of consistency. These services include numerous innovative offerings such as tax-effective share incentive schemes, and a unique investment model to manage the solvency and liquidity requirements of medical aid schemes. 

 

It is as a result of this continuous commitment to innovation and excellence that Mentenova has grown to be widely recognised as the market leader in the industry.

Just Ticker.png

JUST

28 Jan 2022 - 28 Jan 2023

Just is a retirement income specialist who focuses on addressing the widespread, recognised problem of people outliving their assets in retirement. We rethink retirement, offering an innovative range of life annuities, allowing retirees to choose an income structure that meets their needs.
 
Just’s lifetime income is a post-retirement monthly payment providing a guaranteed income in retirement. The income will never decrease no matter what happens to investment markets or how long you live, and any annual increases in income get locked in.
 
Our products include:
•    Just Lifetime Income
•    Just Fixed Escalation Income
•    Just Level Income
•    Just Inflation-linked Income
•    Just Structured Endowment
 
An adapted form of Just Lifetime Income is also available as an asset class within a living annuity, commonly referred to as a blended living annuity.

We believe one-size-fits-all retirement income products don’t suit everyone. Research shows that many retirees would prefer to receive a guaranteed income for life, especially in times of uncertainty. And while investment tools are very effective in managing investment risk, retirees still risk depleting their savings if this is not managed effectively. Longevity risk requires insurance to provide income sustainability throughout retirement – no matter when it ends.  

As an insurer, Just guarantees retirement income for life, giving you financial certainty and protection from outliving your assets.
