Retirement Planning Process

We want to help you plan for a comfortable and worry-free retirement. Our retirement planning process starts with getting to know you and understanding your goals and needs. We'll look at your current financial situation, including your assets, debts, and income. 

Next, we'll work with you to set specific retirement goals and create a plan to reach them. This plan may include saving strategies, investment options, and ways to maximise your retirement income.

Once we have a plan in place, we'll keep an eye on your progress and make adjustments as needed. As life changes, your retirement plan may need to change too. We'll be here to help you every step of the way.

Q: How much am I going to need for my retirement?
A: The answer to this, of course, depends on your aspirations - what will you want to do? What will be the costs of day-to-day living for you (and your partner) in retirement? What else will you want to do now you have time on your hands? What expenses will disappear, for example children or mortgage repayments?

Once you come up with a figure, add in an amount as a buffer against the unforeseen and unexpected. Now you will have arrived at the amount of pension that you should ideally be planning for. Also, bear in mind that pensions are taxable, so you will need to allow for payment of Income Tax when arriving at your final pension figure.


Q: Why is retirement planning important?

A: Retirement planning is important because it helps individuals ensure they have enough money saved to maintain their lifestyle after they stop working. Without a plan, people risk running out of money and not being able to afford their expenses in retirement.

Q: When should I start retirement planning?

A: It's never too early to start retirement planning. The earlier you start saving and investing, the more time your money has to grow. However, if you haven't started yet, it's important to begin as soon as possible to catch up.

Q: What are some common retirement planning mistakes to avoid?

A: Some common retirement planning mistakes include underestimating expenses, not saving enough, relying too much on social security, and not having a diversified investment portfolio.

Q: Why do I need a Pension?

A: When retired, need food, shelter and lifestyle maintenance. Without inheritance or windfall, need secure lifetime income. Well planned pension and regular reviews needed.

Q: I already have a pension so I'll be fine, won't I?

A: Review benefits and status for scheme and personal plan. Talk to employer or pension provider or us for analysis and recommendations. Personal pension size depends on contributions, investment, and charges.

Q: What type of Pension?

A: Depends on employment status and employer's scheme benefits.
