Risk Management


Fidelity can help guide you along the path to-and through-retirement. No matter where you are in life, we can provide guidance, tools, and services to help you prepare for retirement on your terms.

What does it mean to plan for retirement?

In the simplest sense, retirement planning is the planning one does to be prepared for life after paid work ends, not just financially but in all aspects of life. The non-financial aspects include such lifestyle choices as how to spend time in retirement, where to live, when to completely quit working, etc.

What age are you supposed to retire?

Retirement is the point where a person stops employment completely. A person may also semi-retire by reducing work hours.

IRM's mission is to build excellence in risk management, in all sectors and across the world.
