Approaching Retirement

Retirement has changed significantly in recent years as people are living longer. We'll help you to understand all your options so you can approach retirement knowing all the building blocks are already in place.


When you’re approaching retirement you will no doubt have a lot of important questions that need answering, the main ones usually being ‘Can I afford to retire?’, ‘How much is enough?’ and ‘Am I going to be okay?’. However, there are many other things to consider as you get closer to such a significant transition and it’s our job to help you prepare for retirement with clarity, peace of mind and confidence.


Although knowing whether you can afford to retire is at the forefront of most people’s minds as they approach retirement, it’s also important to consider whether you actually want to retire and how you will spend your time once you are no longer working.

For some, working full time to age 65 and then retiring completely will be the right way to go. For others, a phased retirement or a transition to another vocation will be a better route.  That’s why it’s so important to gain clarity over what you want your retirement to look like before making any potentially irreversible decisions.

The first step to gaining clarity is understanding how you might want to spend your time during a retirement that could potentially last for up to 30 to 40 years. This includes all the ‘bucket list’ items such as travel plans, but also the smaller things that will keep you occupied during a ‘normal day’ and how you might include the people you want to share this time with.

Peace of Mind

The primary goal of your financial plan is to deliver to you a retirement that allows you to spend your time doing what you most enjoy. However, as you approach retirement, it’s crucial that we take away any sources of financial worry and provide you with the comfort and peace of mind of knowing that you’re going be okay and won’t outlive your money.

This is where building a strategic retirement plan is so important as this allows us to tell you when retirement will become affordable, how much you will need to have in the pot when the time comes and all the steps you need to take to get there as quickly as possible.

Having this clear plan is key to alleviating your financial concerns to give you the peace of mind of knowing you’re doing all the right things financially at such an important stage in your life.
