Save for retirement
Retirement should be a continuation of your life today and all the things you enjoy spending time on. Through careful planning and goal setting at the outset, we will guide you as to how best to meet your retirement goals, whether you are an employee or self-employed.
A key element in your success is constant reviews of the plan to ensure that you remain on target at all times and will reach your goals. This will give you financial freedom both now and in retirement.
We will suggest an investment journey best suited to your financial goals. The markets will move up down throughout your journey. We will factor in those movements at the outset so you never need to worry about specific events or trying to time the market. The advice will be right for you from day one and using our house fund choice will set your mind at ease knowing the experts are looking out for you.
Future Plan will guide you through the process, providing reporting and ongoing advice
What we do
There are two things we look for:
- Understand your income needs at retirement along with specific goals you might have such as additional travel; buying a holiday home etc. We manage this through our cashflow modelling software to illustrate how much you need to invest before you retire and the type of lifestyle you can expect to enjoy when you get there!
- Understand your attitude towards risk via our questionnaire and risk modelling tool. We will also consider your capacity for risk – this is done by compiling all relevant financial information so we know how much risk you can bear. We take all the data we have gathered into account and ensure that our solution matches your circumstances. For example if you depend on one source of income at retirement we will guide you through ways to manage this risk.
- Implement a retirement plan that meets your income goals whilst being consistent with your overall risk tolerance.
