How do the new rules affect your pension pot?
The Government’s new pension rules mean that you now have several choices when it comes to what you can do with your pension. This includes, releasing funds, receiving a guaranteed income, passing funds down through generations or a mixture of options. What you may not realise, is that not all pensions allow you to take full advantage of these new rules.
We can help you find a pension that’s truly fit for purpose.
The Financial Conduct Authority does not regulate taxation advice.
When, like me, your investment knowledge is limited the first things you want from an IFA is someone whose honesty, experience and advice you feel you can trust. If after that you get to like them as a person who shares similar values with you, as I have and do, then the association should prove to be fruitful. I recommended Paul to both my sons when they needed mortgage advice and would not hesitate to recommend him to others.
Paul has been our financial adviser for many years and has helped us with general investments and pension provision. We have always found him to be approachable, trustworthy and reliable. He understands our attitude to risk and our need to be cautious investors and has explained thoroughly and in simple terms any possible changes that might affect us. He keeps us regularly updated with our investments and is always available to give us advice on any other financial problems which may occur. We would not hesitate to recommend him to others.
Thoroughly impressed with Howards advice and whole professional manner. He clearly explained all of the options to me and educated me through the processes. I feel confident that he is looking after my best interests and will continue to refer him to my family, friends and colleagues.
Howard explains what he is going to do in a calm, confident and readily understandable way. He is excellent at explaining exactly what he is proposing to do and how much it is going to cost. Whatever I wish to discuss with Howard, he has the ability to give all the reassurance I need.
Paul was recommended to me by a colleague, i am always very guarded when speaking with professional finance people but Paul was very different from the usual, he was extremely helpful, he listened to my needs and offered me lots of different options, he explained everything very thoroughly and always conducted himself very professionally.I trusted him 100% with my financial needs and his advice has put me in a very comfortable position.I have since recommended him to other members of my family and a lot of my friends/business colleagues.I would thoroughly recommend him for all your financial planning needs.
The last adviser i had was very friendly and easy going but i felt that i made most of the decisions , Howard is also very easy to get on with but has come up with suggestions that fit with my plan.I like to feel that my advisor is listening to me and then together we can agree on the best way forward, i have found Howard very good in this respect.
