PENSION & INVESTMENT APPRAISAL

If you feel like you need a second opinion on your retirement plans, we are happy to provide an expert appraisal to make sure you’re on track to meet your goals. Whilst investing is a long-term strategy, it is important to look at your pensions and investments regularly to check they are on track to meet your goals. We provide quarterly rebalancing for our customers and depending on the service you choose, either 6-monthly or annual in-depth reviews.

As markets change, your investments and pensions may need to be tweaked or moved to keep your money working hardest for you.

Good habits would be to:

  • Ensure your investments are diversified
  • Check your investments are invested in line with the amount of risk you are comfortable
  • Check that your investments are suitable for your circumstances and goals.
  • Check you are aware of and comfortable with the charges your pension/investment product is charging you.

It’s important to remember that Investments that offer the possibility of high returns often also come with a high-level of risk attached. Investments vary from High to Medium to Conservative levels of risk and the risk profile that’s right for you will depend on your own appetite for risk.

The risk of investments can change over time, sometimes dramatically. So what is right for you now, may not be right for you in the future.

If you’re not sure where your Risk Appetite/Tolerance lies, speak to a financial adviser.

Our Pension and wealth management specialist can help assess your investments and, if required, suggest tax-efficient ways to invest and suitable products for you.

MAXIMISING PENSION RETURNS

Your pension will most likely be one of your biggest assets in retirement, so it’s important to make your money work hard for you. With our Retirement Planning service we can help you plan to maximise your pension by ensuring that

  • your pension offers value for money i.e. you’re not paying too much in charges
  • You choose investments that perform well in the market
  • It’s invested in an effective way and in-line with your risk profile
  • you access your money tax-efficiently
  • you don’t take too much money, too soon

You can still have access to regular income or lump sum withdrawals, but this way you should see growth in your investment [Capital at Risk].

We offer a FREE, no obgligation initial call to discuss your requirements, why not contact our friendly team today?

ESTATE AND PENSION PLANNING

You’ve worked hard for your money, so it’s important to know what’s going to happen to it when you’re gone.

One of the great tax advantages of a Self-invested personal pension or SIPP is that they allow you to bypass inheritance tax by passing on wealth via your pension to your beneficiaries on your death. Your beneficiaries can normally choose to take the pension fund as a lump sum or leave it invested in a SIPP.

The tax treatment of death benefits paid from your pension depends on two factors:

  • Your age when you die.
  • Whether or not the pension funds are ‘designated’ to your beneficiary within two years – designating the funds just means transferring them into the beneficiaries’ names.

Death before age 75Death after age 75
  • If you die before your 75th birthday and your pension funds are ‘designated’ to your beneficiaries within two years they will be paid tax-free.
  • If your beneficiaries choose to take income from the fund they do not need to take the money out within the two-year period but can wait and take income when required. The tax treatment is the same regardless of whether the beneficiaries opt to take a lump sum or income.
  • If you live beyond your 75th birthday, or if you die earlier but your pension funds are not designated within two years, then the death benefits will be taxed.
  • Whether your beneficiaries take the benefits as a lump sum or designate them to provide an income, they will be taxed as income.
  • If your beneficiary is not an individual, for example, you have nominated a trust, then benefits will be paid as a lump sum, and this is taxed at 45%.
  • Payments to a charity on death over 75 will not be taxed provided you have nominated the charity and you have no surviving dependents.
