Retirement Planning

There are three distinct stages to retirement planning:-

  • “Pre” retirement – Building sufficient funds ahead of retirement to sustain your chosen lifestyle
  • “At” retirement – Making the right decisions when you decide to give up full time work
  • “Post” retirement – Managing your income for the rest of your life

We recognise that each one of us is different, and there are many factors to take into account e.g. the size of your funds, your own personal circumstances including your health and whether you need to provide a pension for a dependant after your death. It is important that you take your time and make the right decisions.

Some of the areas that we will advise you on are as follows:-

  • How best to build up a retirement fund in a tax efficient manner at both Accumulation and Decumulation stages.
  • Investing a lump sum of money for either capital growth or income.
  • Paying in regular premiums to build towards a better retirement.
  • Ensuring that your pension pot passes to the right people in a tax efficient manner on death.

A pension is a long term investment.  The fund value may fluctuate and can go down.  Your eventual income may depend upon the size of the fund at retirement, future interest rates and tax legislation.
