Retirement creeps up on all of us. We regularly see young people who believe they have years ahead of them before they need to consider investing and saving for their retirement.
Of course, having a pension is a good start, but your overall plan needs be taken into account. Do you dream of an idyllic, sun-drenched retirement or plan to spend your golden years enjoying the fast life? However you plan to spend your retirement years, you need the financial security to whatever you wish.
We have a few key considerations for you, no matter if retirement is around the corner or years away.
If you are not sure of your retirement plans or in which country you want to retire, that does not mean you can’t start making sensible decisions now.
The earlier you start laying the foundations for retirement, the better. It’s as simple as that. Many people believe they can rely entirely on pension products. However, if you add over 10 years of savings to the same pot, you will have a much larger fund when your retirement years arrive.
You should also consider how your retirement plans might change. For example, a substantial nest egg will make it much easier to:
The ideal position to be in is to have saved enough for your retirement plan to do all the above. By seeking professional and tailored financial advice, you will be in the best possible situation to get there.
The more time you have to allow your savings to flourish, the greater the chance to see higher returns and increase the size of your nest egg.
Whether you are already an expat or plan the big move after retirement, it is important to seek professional advice, as there are a few considerations that will affect your retirement if you decide to move abroad, including:
These are just a few points that can affect the retirement strategy for you upon moving abroad. Working with a wealth manager with skills tailored to your needs is crucial to understand your pension options in your home country and wherever you plan to retire.
Only a few years of carefully and professionally managed investments and proactive decisions could dramatically change your financial situation ready for retirement.
Whenever you sit down to reassess your retirement, even if the time is nearing, it’s essential to think about:
The key to successful financial planning is to assess where you are and what you need to get where you want to be. Because even if you have already retired, this does not mean you can’t change your plans and figure out how to adapt your wealth management strategy to suit your lifestyle needs.
All this consideration can seem overwhelming, but is so important. Most people are retired for over 30 years, so it is crucial to invest your energy and money in professional and tailored financial advice.
