Retirement Planning | Pension Drawdown Company

Retirement Planning

We are retirement planning and Pension Drawdown specialists and have been managing clients’ retirement plans since 1999.

Over the past 2 two decades, we have helped our clients transition from working life into retirement through developing robust retirement plans that work for their individual circumstances.

The main objective of any retirement plan is the provision of sufficient income in retirement. There are many factors that can influence this outcome – it is not just about saving into a pension.

Often, starting with a pre-retirement discussion, we will advise you on your options for the future. We will talk to you about timescales and your aspirations for retirement. We can help you make informed decisions regarding savings and investments, as well as pension arrangements and structure your financial affairs so that you can retire with a tailored plan to meet your individual needs.

If you are about to retire, we can help you decide how you should draw your pension benefits and if required, structure any investment income to supplement your benefits. Once on-board, we will review your arrangements regularly to make sure they remain suitably invested and continue to meet your requirements.

An important part of retirement planning often involves pension consolidation to simplify your affairs; it also increasingly includes individuals wishing to transfer out of their employer Final Salary Schemes). This requires a specialist qualifications and can only be offered by advisers holding The CII Certificate in Pension Transfers (Formerly Advanced Financial Planning Certificate "AF3 Qualification" and before that "G60"). As "At Retirement Specialists" we are seasoned practitioners in this area and in order to meet this specialised requirement, we offer the professional services of four financial planners holding this prestigious qualification (meet the team).

The value of investments and income from them may go down. You may not get back the original amount invested.

A pension is a long term investment, the fund value may fluctuate and can go down. Your eventual income may depend on the size of the fund at retirement, future interest rates and tax legislation.

Information is based on our current understanding of taxation legislation and regulations. Any levels and bases of reliefs from taxation, are subject to change.

Taking withdrawals may erode the capital value of the fund, especially if investment returns are poor and a high level of income is being taken. This could result in a lower income when the annuity is eventually purchased.
