Retirement Planning

Financial planning for your retirement

Maintaining your standard of living in retirement is a concern for many people. The Government’s message that individuals need to be taking more responsibility for their financial wellbeing must be taken on board with the State no longer providing an adequate retirement pension, the rapid decline in final salary pension schemes and increased longevity.


Your situation is complex

Many people’s pension situation is complex, with a number of different pension schemes being accumulated over their working life. As part of our financial planning process, will take time to unravel the detail and consider whether you have adequately provided for your retirement.


You need sound retirement planning advice

You can do much to ensure that sufficient critical capital is built up. This may include the best use of your annual ISA allowance or setting up a stakeholder pension. For larger sums, a Self Invested Personal Pension (SIPP) might be appropriate. Here at John Shepherd Financial Services, we can give you useful SIPP advice, ensuring that any SIPP investments you might make are consistent with your retirement financial planning goals.


You need tax efficient solutions

We will always consider the tax implications of our advice. However, any decisions should be made in the context of your overall financial plan, rather than to achieve a short term tax benefit.


A financial planner who understands legislation

The latest pension legislation came into effect on 6th April 2006, often referred to as “A” day. We specialise in retirement planning and are able to offer you the very best in retirement planning advice.
