How we can help you plan for retirement
We understand that you want to enjoy a comfortable retirement after a lifetime of hard work. We are committed to helping you achieve your retirement goals.
The importance of early planning
The sooner you start planning for retirement, the better. This is because your money has more time to grow through compound interest. Compound interest is when your earnings start earning interest on themselves, which can lead to significant growth over time.
Avoiding under-performing pensions
Under-performing pensions and poor management can seriously erode the value of your final pension pot. We can help you avoid these pitfalls by providing you with expert advice and guidance. We will work with you to create a personalised retirement plan that takes into account your individual circumstances and goals.
Your Existing Pensions
How to locate your old pensions
The first step to getting pension advice is to locate all of your old pensions. If you have forgotten the details of your old pensions, you can start by contacting the government’s Pension Tracing Service. They can help you locate any pensions you may have joined, totally free of charge.
To use the Pension Tracing Service, you will need to provide some basic information, such as your name, date of birth, and National Insurance number. Once you have provided this information, the Pension Tracing Service will do their best to locate your old pensions.
Once you have located all of your old pensions, you can then contact the pension providers to gather information about your pensions, such as the value of your pensions, the investment options available, and the fees charged. This information will be helpful to your financial advisor when they are developing a pension plan for you.
We can help you review your existing pensions and identify any areas where you may be able to reduce your charges and improve your investment performance. We will contact your previous pension provider to obtain a full breakdown of your pension plan, including your investment portfolio, performance history, and charges.
We understand that even the best performing pension funds can be eroded by high charges, commissions, and fees. We will work with you to identify any areas where you may be able to reduce your charges and improve your investment performance.
