Approaching retirement

You are around 5-10 years from retirement and are starting to think seriously about what you want your retirement life to look like. Crucially, you are also wondering whether your pension arrangements can support your ambitions and how much you can afford to spend on making your retirement dreams a reality.

If this is you, we can help. We know that planning for retirement can be tricky, so we are here to provide clarity about your current situation, confidence in your future, and answers to the questions you have about how you get there.

Here’s how we will help you

We always tailor our work to clients’ specific personal goals, aspirations and circumstances. However, that work will broadly include:


Providing answers

How much money do you need to save in your pension before you can retire? How soon can you retire? How much money is enough to last you the rest of your life? What can you afford to do when you finish working? We’re here to provide clear answers to your questions and help you decide what to do next.


Cashflow planning

This plays an important role in helping you understand what you have and what you’ll need at different stages of your life, allowing you to plan for the future with greater accuracy and confidence. With cashflow planning, we can stress test your finances and ensure there are sufficient funds to cover your needs in retirement and for the duration of your life.


Quality advice

With a cashflow plan in place, we can discover if your current pensions and investments are positioned to take you to the retirement lifestyle you desire and the age you want to retire. If there is a projected shortfall, we will advise you on your options. We hold Pension Transfer Specialist status, enabling us to assist on final salary and defined benefit pensions.


A retirement plan

Retirement is your time to live life on your own terms, whether that’s travelling and seeing the world, spending time with those you love, or developing new interests. That’s why we start every retirement planning journey by asking you about your priorities and vision for the future. With those answers and a cashflow model in place, we will build a roadmap to take you there.
