Maturing Your Pension

If you intend to mature your pension soon it is important that you obtain professional advice as many pensions are not matured optimally.

If you have a substantial pension we can offer a very attractive allocation rate for your Approved Retirement Fund. Contact us now on 01 546 1100 to discuss.

If you have a more modest pension you may be able to access all of it tax free. Very often the retirement lump sum amount which is contained in your Retirement Options letter is not the maximum amount you can achieve. We believe that we can obtain a higher retirement lump sum for you in the majority of cases.

How we are different

Any adviser can process a maturity for you but appropriate investment advice is critical when you are going into drawdown. Read more about investing during retirement in this blog post.

As Specialist Investment Advisers our main focus will be on investment strategy. If you retain us to advise you we will provide you with detailed advice on the following;

  • how the various asset classes work and the expected returns from each
  • the risks inherent in investing and methods for reducing risk, which are different for an investor who is going into drawdown (post-retirement) versus a pension saver (pre-retirement)
  • recommended investment strategy for you and, if you are in drawdown, recommended withdrawal strategy taking into account the need to sustain your fund for your desired term

If you choose this service we’ll provide you with an ARF sustainability report annually which will give you increased visibility on the sustainability of your retirement income.

If you are interested in discussing this further please give us a call on 01 546 1100, send us your details via our Contact Us  form or book a 15 minute video call with us here.
