ICR003: Justin King, equity exposure & growing old without children
This week on the Informed Choice Podcast, we speak to Justin King about his new book on retirement, question whether conventional wisdom on reducing equity exposure as you get older still makes sense, and consider growing old without children.
Martin started the podcast with a recap of his week. He talked about the Jigsaw Run he is helping to organise this Sunday, a 10k race at Dunsfold Park, home of BBC Top Gear.
The YouTube show and podcast Martin mentioned in the introduction was called London Real, a weekly one hour chat show format with individuals who seek to inspire and inform.
Martin mentioned that the Informed Choice Podcast is now available on Stitcher, which is radio on demand.

The main interview this episode of the Informed Choice Podcast was with Justin King, a Financial Life Planner from MFP Wealth Management in Christchurch in Dorset.
Martin and Justin have written a new book together, which is being launched today, called Ready, Steady, Retire! They chatted about the book, a growing retired population and things to consider when you enter retirement.

Finally, Martin talked about an article in The Guardian by a campaign group called Ageing Without Children. You can read the article here.
