You’re never too young to start thinking about what you’ll live on after you’ve retired, in fact the earlier the better. Thinking about your pension and planning for retirement will raise lots of questions, such as how much will you need, for how long and how much does that mean you need to save? Whilst the government has introduced some free tools for exploring the various options available to you, it won’t provide guidance on exactly what is best for you and your individual circumstances. We offer a range of services to help you meet your investment and/or retirement objectives. We provide independent investment advice which we will discuss with you as described in our important information about our services document.
The sooner you start your pension the more time it has to accumulate compound interest and a few pounds when you’re young can turn into much more later on in life. Legally, most employers have to offer their employees access to a workplace pension, but if you’re self-employed you’ll need to set up a personal pension.
Divorce is generally considered a traumatic experience and one where you are frequently asked to make decisions about things you know nothing about. Are you entitled to a share of your partner’s pension? Have you been offered a share in a pension belonging to your Spouse? If so, how will you decide what you should do with it? Our experienced Independent Financial Advisers will lead you through the process with compassion and understanding, speaking in plain English so that you will be able to make the correct decision for you.

You will have all the information you need prior to making any decisions.
