Helping you achieve financial freedom
Whatever your existing pension arrangements, we are confident that our review of your pension plans and personal financial position, and our recommendations moving ahead, can put you on the right path to achieving your ultimate aim – true financial freedom and independence in retirement.
A key cornerstone of your personal financial plan has to be making provision for your retirement. Unfortunately, far too many people avoid the issue altogether and put off making a decision. After all, for many people it may be decades in the future before they retire.
Even those who sensibly start paying into a pension scheme early on in their careers have only done half the job. They probably don’t realise that you need to regularly monitor both the performance of your pension fund and underlying charges, and ensure that your contributions are keeping pace with inflation. What’s more, if the global economy suffers a downturn as it did in 2008, this will almost certainly have a knock-on effect on the value of your pension, and you may need to make changes to it.
Yet, by carrying out some simple financial planning early in your career and taking a more active role in monitoring your pension, you can look forward to a more financially secure and comfortable retirement.
