RETIREMENT & INVESTING
NEEDS NOT BE OVERCOMPLICATED – BUT IT DOES NEED PLANNING
We will then work with you to prioritise and order your next steps so you know exactly how to go about organising your financial affairs.
We’re often asked, “How much money do I need to retire?”. The answer lies in understanding the life you want to lead post retirement. It’s a very different number if you want to live in an apartment in New York, or in a beach hut in a remote village.
Being clear on your vision, your ‘wants’ and ‘must haves’, gives us a clear view of where we are heading. We then work to understand what you have already, and what income we can save to get you to that goal. Along the way to retirement, you will incur expenses such as university fees, weddings and a car needing an upgrade. We work these into your plan.
Lastly, we plan for post retirement draw down. This takes careful consideration now to make sure that we optimise tax when you start to use your money. How do we deal with Capital Gains Tax and Income Tax on retirement funds? Should you sell one of your investment properties first or use your unit trusts? Your investments now need to be in the right structures to make sure that draw down is effectively managed.
