In retirement

This is the stage in life when you can enjoy the fruits of all those years of hard work; this should be the longest holiday of your life.

Will you run out of money in retirement?

The question of whether you will have enough money to last through retirement really depends on the type of retirement you want to enjoy. During the active stage of retirement, you want the confidence to be able to spend money on activities and luxuries. In the later stages of life, you may want the security of knowing you can afford the necessary care.

We’ll spend time getting to know you and your goals for retirement. Then we’ll create a holistic financial plan which will set you on the right course to achieve them.

We can help you

  • Achieve the retirement you want to have.
  • Simplify your various pensions and invest them to achieve your retirement goals. We can also advise on Defined Benefit pension transfers.
  • Give a helping hand to your children – perhaps with education fees or getting onto the property ladder.
  • With tax planning to make sure you can pass on your wealth in both life and in death.
  • To release equity from investments, including your home.
  • With long-term care planning to make sure that money is available to pay for your care.

Mr R C Brady

I was introduced to PFM by a family member about eight years ago, in order to obtain personal pension planning advice. I have been very pleased with the advice given by my adviser, for my pensions and for wealth management. I have no hesitation in recommending PFM.
