Income in Retirement
An Annuity is a guaranteed fixed income which you buy with a lump sum; its term may be to a fixed date, when you die or when your spouse or another named person dies.
When you come to retirement, it might be tempting to choose the first fixed rate, level annuity quote you receive but with life expectancy increasing, your annuity might have to pay out for considerably longer and your needs may change over time therefore it is sensible to shop around.
With so many options available, choosing the right solution for you can be a complex decision. Our Financial Planners are available to discuss these options with you in more detail and help you understand what’s best for your situation.
Building your investment portfolio is much more than choosing products, it takes into account tax saving opportunities, your attitude toward risk and reward as well as balancing the need for growth, income or both.
Whether it’s because you’ve had a windfall or built up a tidy nest egg by saving on a regular basis, your money should be invested wisely so that its spending power is protected for the future. Leaving large amounts of money in banks or building societies often reduces the spending power of your money due to inflation, and may not be the answer long term.
Whether you’re a first time saver or investor, or you just need an impartial view of your existing arrangements, our Financial Planners can assess how your money should be managed.
