  • Retirement Planning


In the past it was common to rely on a final salary pension or the State to provide an income in retirement. These days it is up to us to take responsibility for our own retirement planning.

While most of us are aware that we need to plan for retirement this doesn’t make it any easier. Working out how much you need to save now to create a healthy income in the future is hard and so too is finding the money to save while covering today’s mounting living costs.

At Bestinvest we think an excellent place to start is by making sure your existing pensions are working as hard for you as they can.


Have you collected any workplace or personal pensions? If your pensions aren’t performing as well as they could this is likely to have a big impact on the amount of money you have in retirement.

Don’t overlook the power of compounding when saving for retirement. Even if you can only afford to save a modest sum of money, the chances are it will grow substantially over time.

People often treat their pensions differently to their other investments or don’t consider them investments at all. But pensions are investments and the amount of money you will have in retirement is linked directly to the success of your pension investments.

Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future returns

The value of your investment can go down as well as up, and you can get back less than you originally invested.
