Retirement planning and pension services

Use our quick calculator below to see if you will have enough money in retirement.

Clients almost always ask us “Will I be able to retire when I want to? Will I run out of money? How can I guarantee the kind of retirement I want?”  As no-one knows exactly how long they’re going to live or what financial challenges they may face, these are hard questions to answer. Pensions can be complex with so many considerations, including your family circumstances, pension rules and tax regulations. The good news is that whatever your situation, and however you want to enjoy retirement, we can help set up bespoke arrangements that are right for your needs. You can start by using our quick caclulator to see how likely you are to have enough money with the plans you have in place today.

Want to review your retirement planning?

Why choose our retirement planning service?

Importantly, we don’t simply look at your pension. Our independent, fee-based advisory service starts with a strategic review of all your personal financial arrangements, to see how they can best be structured to support your retirement. We will also make sure everything is done in the right order, as some decisions can impact other areas of your wealth planning.

This could include:

  • Cash flow modelling – looking at your current wealth along with your income and trying out different scenarios to see how they might work to fund your retirement
  • Pension pot review – looking through all your current pensions to check they are still fit for purpose and are being properly managed
  • Future income options – navigating the complexities of pension regulation and ‘freedoms’ to ensure you make the right choices for your future prosperity
  • Retirement funds outside your pension – advice on creating income streams outside of your pension for maximum flexibility and tax efficiency
  • Tax allowances – making the most of all the allowances available to you, to maximise tax efficiency
  • Passing on wealth – advice on succession and estate planning as your decisions could affect the inheritance tax payable on your estate.

If you have funds invested through our investment management service, your investments are in expert hands, with a strategy built around your individual needs. We will take this into consideration when advising you.

Independent advice on pensions and retirement

Not only are they highly experienced, our personal wealth planners are also independent, not tied to any particular provider or product (not even our own), they can give you truly impartial retirement planning advice on a broad range of solutions and choose the best options for your unique needs.

To ensure you stay on track, we will build and maintain a long-standing relationship with you, reviewing your retirement plan regularly to make sure it is still working as you wish.
