retire to do what you want to do
Retirement planning is an important part of wider financial planning. We believe that the key to a happy retirement is a sensible plan. We will provide recommendations for how to reach your retirement goals and help you make informed decisions. With our cash flow and projection tools, we can choose appropriate portfolios designed to fit your lifestyle and attitude toward risk. We can help you with setting up a new pension plan, reviewing and consolidating your existing arrangements, or helping you to draw your pension when it’s time to retire.
helping you manage your money
How much do I need to retire?
Everybody has different needs and there is no single rule. The State Pension will provide some income but might not be enough to support a comfortable life. We will assess your current expenses and how much you could save per month with our cash flow tools to estimate your target pension pot.
Should I consolidate my pensions?
That depends. At Glade Financial we will analyse your current pension provisions, their performance and underlying funds. We will analyse your circumstances and risk profile to evaluate the best way to manage your money. If we agree that consolidating your pension is the right choice, whether due to costs, risk profile or ease of management, we will make all the necessary arrangements.
"Retirement is wonderful if you have two essentials: much to live on and much to live for."
