Welcome to The Retirement Café

The Retirement Café events give local people an opportunity to learn more about issues, opportunities and challenges that may affect their retirement, over coffee and cake.

Retirement can be one of the most enjoyable stages of life: time to take up new hobbies or get pleasure from doing the ones you love; and opportunities to spend time with family and friends and generally relish a more relaxing pace of life.

But with more time and freedom can come new challenges to be faced.

Each quarter you can hear experts talk about a range of topics such as coping with dementia, paying for care, Inheritance Tax or how to protect your wealth after you’re gone.

Specialists in their field of expertise are brought together to help guide you through the challenges you are likely to meet as you navigate through retirement.

At the Retirement Café you can ask the expert panel questions so you feel better informed and more confident in your retirement. Information shared is for guidance only. You will definitely not be sold to at the Retirement Café. In fact, you cannot buy anything – not even the coffee! The coffee is on us and so is the chat.

The Retirement Café demonstrates MFP Wealth Management’s commitment to customer service in providing meaningful information when planning for retirement.

The Retirement Café is held  every quarter at a hotel in Christchurch, Dorset.

We recognise that as you approach or enjoy your retirement you are likely to face a whole new set of issues, opportunities and challenges. Our aim is to help you feel more informed about those issues and challenges by providing access to information on topics that interest you most. The topics we have chosen for The Retirement Café are based upon the questions we are most often asked by people like you – people approaching or already enjoying their retirement. Events are confirmed a few weeks’ in advance and we are always interested to hear about other topics that would interest The Retirement Café community, so please get in touch.

MFP Wealth Management’s  Retirement Cafés are an example of understanding client needs and expectations.

Strongly recommended.


The Retirement Café is of immense interest. They demonstrate to MFP’s clients that they need to be aware of other aspects of retirement and not just the income part of it.


The Retirement Café sessions are a really useful way of discussing issues that are of interest. With a format where we are all able to participate and bounce things off the experts, we all gained a huge amount.
