growing your pension pot

Q

growing your pension pot

Every type of investment needs some care and maintenance, your pension is no different. You might need to make small changes to your pension over time to ensure it's on the right path and growing. Maintaining control of your investment will keep things on track. It all starts with understanding the amount you need to retire. In an ever-changing world, many things could've changed since you last reviewed your pension. Lifestyle changes, new investment opportunities or even new attitudes to existing investments. Making small changes now could make a big difference to your future. 

 

During Pensions Awareness Week, you can learn more about how to grow your pension pot. It’s your money and you call the shots. Register for a session, it’s free, quick and easy! Get on board and start planning your future today. Your future self will thank you for it!

pension consolidation

Q

pension consolidation

These days, we tend to change our jobs many times within the span of our careers and it's easy to lose touch with our old pensions. They could be overseas or even sit with an old employer who may be sending paperwork to an old address. These pensions could be exposed to risks or fees that aren't necessary. As you progress, it's essential to keep track of your old pensions and, consolidating is one way to ensure you remain in control. It’s your money and you should be able to know what's happening, when, where, how and why. We certainly think so.  

 

During Pensions Awareness Week, you can learn more about taking control of pensions from your old jobs with a single investment strategy to bring your pension pots together. Register for a session, it’s free, quick and easy! Get on board and start planning your future today. Your future self will thank you for it!

retirement planning

Q

retirement planning

As Peter Drucker so perfectly said, "There is one prerequisite to managing the second half of your life. You must begin long before you enter it." Failing to plan is planning to fail. Whatever the quote or slogan they boil down to this….it’s never too early to begin to plan for your retirement. Many young people believe that retirement is the end but, we understand that it’s the start of something new. Even if everyone isn't sure what they want to do when they retire, many people retiring today are much more active than previous generations.

 

During Pensions Awareness Week, you can learn more about how you can prepare for your retirement today. Register for a session, it’s free, quick and easy! Get on board and start planning your future today. Your future self will thank you for it!

So, what is

a pension?

So, what is a pension?

Simply put, a pension is a savings fund with your name on it. Your pension is the savings fund used to pay for your retirement. Ideally, you shouldn’t access your fund until at least the age of 60.

Your money is invested on your behalf by a pension provider. Typically, a pension provider will invest your pension into company shares, bonds and property through an investment fund. Our goal is to help you generate long-term growth.
