Retirement advice is crucial in our ever more complex world. Retirement has become a process rather than an event. We all used to imagine the date of our retirement perhaps our 65th birthday…but now retirement often marks the start of a journey as we perhaps work only 3 days a week or take on some other form of paid work. But what is yours going to look like and how will you fund it?
Expert independent financial helps plan, manage and secure that process. Call Simon or Pam on 01233 722922 for further information.

Given the state of the public purse and the recently floated notion that state pension may not kick in before age 70, planning for a comfortable retirement is absolutely essential and you are never too late to start.
Our pre retirement advice is to invest as much in a properly arranged pension as you can reasonably afford and that you review your contribution levels regularly.
If you want to top up your pension income in or pre retirement and you own your own home it is possible to borrow against its value to provide additional income or capital in retirement – without any need to make repayments. The interest is added to the debt and is paid off when you die. Huge advances have been made in equity release mortgage regulation and reputable arrangements are now covered by the Safe Home Income Plan (SHIP) Guarantee.
We are equity release experts based in Ashford, also serving Maidstone and Canterbury in Kent.
