Interview: Why A Finance Management Platform Prioritizes Flexibility For Today's Active Retirees
Kindur VP of design & experience speaks to PSFK about how the digital platform works to increase transparency and accessibility when it comes to managing modern finances, designing user experiences in accordance with the behavior of today’s retirees to better meet their needs
While retirement used to imply a definite ending, today's retirees are continually redefining this stage of life in terms of how they are living as consumers, employees and families. Where retirement may once have been synonymous with end of employment, today's 60+ crowd is more likely instead to have a career change, perhaps supplementing finances with Airbnb hosting or Uber driving.
Kindur is a retirement financial management platform designed with these consumers in mind, focusing less on fixed points and instead employing a milestone-based approach that allows for flexibility around key retirement events, from electing social security to taking a first distribution from an IRA. Ahead of his appearance on the New York Fintech Week ‘Democratizing Finance,” Kindur's VP of experience and design, Reilly Carpenter, spoke to PSFK to help us learn more about how the digital platform works to increase transparency and accessibility when it comes to managing modern finances, designing user experiences around and integrated with the behavior of today's retirees to better meet their needs.
