Retirement Planning

A person’s pension fund can often represent their most significant asset other than their family home and pension planning constitutes a significant part of our business.  We have a great deal of experience with helping our clients build up a tax efficient pension fund and advising them on how to take benefits from these funds on retirement.

We help individuals, trusts and charities achieve their financial goals and objectives, through a combination of excellent client service, technical expertise and a strong investment process.

Our Ethos
Pensions remain the most tax efficient savings vehicle available to clients

As your fund accumulates your contributions receive Income Tax relief at source and the investments in your pension fund grow in a tax-free environment.  When you choose to take benefits from your pension you have access to a tax-free lump sum (Pension Commencement Lump Sum) in addition to a taxable income.  In addition to this defined contribution pension funds have significant Inheritance Tax advantages as they can be passed to a surviving spouse or other dependents outside the scope of Inheritance Tax.

There are a number of ways that you can take benefits from your pension fund

Alongside these advantages there are a number of complications.  There are limits on how much an individual can contribute each year and additional tax will be payable if a pension fund grows beyond the Lifetime Allowance.  Both elements need careful management in the period leading up to and beyond the date at which benefits are taken.

There are also a growing number of ways that you can take benefits from your pension fund, including traditional annuity purchase, drawdown and UFPLS (Uncrystallised Fund Pension Lump Sums) as well as a number of exceptions for small pension pots.  It is important that you understand the advantages and limitations of each of these before committing yourself to a course of action.

Our aim is to make the retirement process as easy as possible by setting out the options available and helping our clients to select a strategy that will help them (and their families) meet their long-term objectives.  This includes regular valuations of your pension funds before and after retirement including the use of cash-flow modelling and a review of your pension options.
