Better Retirement is a firm of Chartered Financial Planners who specialise in helping clients get the best annuity for their individual circumstances and is one of the best known annuity experts in the UK. With over 20 years’ experience Better Retirement is well placed to help you:
Better Retirement is run by Tim Eadon with a team of qualified financial advisers, specialist annuity advisers and experienced support staff.
Tim started in financial services in 1995 having spent many years working in the leisure industry. He joined Commercial Union holding various posts, including Corporate Pensions Regional Manager, ultimately as Divisional Manager with what became Norwich Union after two subsequent mergers.
In 2003 he joined Sesame, the UK's largest network of IFAs, to manage and develop the in-house complex pensions advice firm, achieving an MBA in 2004.
In 2006 was appointed CEO of the Personal Finance Society, the foremost professional body for financial advisers in the UK with 24,000 members. Seeing academic achievement sitting alongside good quality financial advice, Tim went on to attain Chartered Financial Planner status in 2007. The role enabled him to have a significant influence on the creation of the Retail Distribution Review, helping drive up the standards in financial services.
In 2009 he co-founded Better Retirement, the first Chartered specialists in the equity release and care advice sector. Concerned that many older people are being
forced into care homes when all they want is to receive care at home, due mainly to a lack of quality information and sound financial advice, Tim continues to
help customers make better informed decisions by providing help and support at a critical time in their lives.
2010 saw Better Retirement merge with equityCare and Better Care, forming part of the Better Retirement Group, one of the UK’s leading annuity specialists, where Tim is now the MD.
Duane was a senior consultant with Annuity Direct from 1997 to 2009 where he was responsible on advising clients on all aspects of annuities.
Duane was delighted to be asked to work with Billy Burrows again, and has been with Better Retirement from the outset
