The Bank of Ireland/ESRI Retirement Optimism Index, which tracks how confident Irish people feel about their financial prospects in retirement increased to 104 points in May, the highest since the launch of the Index. May’s results showed that 57% of Irish people have some financial plan in place for retirement, the highest response since the question was initially asked in November 2017. The improvement was particularly visible amongst people under 50 where almost half (49%) answered that they had some retirement planning in place.
