Your pension options: how to keep it simple

The last 20 years has been like the final moments at an auction:

  • Free tuition
  • Reasonable house prices
  • A gold-plated company pension

All going or gone. Financial pillars that supported the previous generation snatched away.

It hardly seems fair.

Thankfully, if you feel let down (by the system or the man, whatever you want to call it) there is one way to wrestle back control over your financial future.

And it’s easier than you might think.

Meet the greyest character in dullsville

Your personal pension. We know, hardly a shade of grey to get the pulse racing. And yet, a well-looked-after pension could mean more for you when you need it. Possibly a lot more.

  • More freedom to do the things you want to do.
  • More peace of mind right now, knowing that your pension is sorted and you are already one step ahead of the rest.
  • And more money.

More money, you say…how much more?

According to leading independent think tank ILC-UK: people who get financial advice have, on average, £27,6641 more in their pension pot than those who don’t.

And bear in mind this figure is only an average.

You’ve got the power!

You don’t need to make any kind of commitment to find out if your pension is straining ever sinew for you, or lazing about without a care in the world.

It’s simply a case of analysing what you’ve got and calculating if you would be better off by switching to a modern, easy-to-manage pension. And companies such as Portafina will do this without charging you a penny, and without you having to do any of the hard work.

Take control today

Taking control feels good, especially when it’s hassle-free and the result could be more money in the long term, for when you are starting to plan an exciting new phase in your life.

And putting aside the logical reasoning for a moment, it feels good to get one over on the man.
