Thank you for reading and sharing my blogs in 2013. Below are the three most popular blogs in 2013 as voted by you the readers. Please continue to read, share and provide feedback in 2014 as I continue to write about ways to solve the pensions crisis and develop ideas and concepts to help ensure we can all feel confident and in control of our financial future. I will continue to write the odd blog about my other passions away from pensions with the Catalyst Club (Cancer Research), Commando Spirit, RedStart, rowing and tennis.

So why resign?
Armed, on graduation, with these fifteen traits, what rower can fail? What business could fail when it employs a good number of them? A master of these disciplines is a master of people, of teams and of businesses.
SABC continues to grow, recruit more novice winners, field more boats, win more races, get more bumps, win blades and make progress up the race divisions. Good luck SABC both as rowers and as tomorrow’s graduates.
This is why Redington proudly supports St Anne’s Boat Club.

But perhaps its biggest contribution to society has been RedStart, a groundbreaking programme that offered free financial education to young people all across the world.
