When thinking about retirement, the feeling is often one of excitement looking forward to a seven day weekend coupled with anxiety about whether you have saved enough money to support yourself. That’s why planning as far in advance as possible is almost a prerequisite to enjoying an exciting retirement. However, rather than doing the planning alone, it’s best to entrust your worries to the experts. IFP offers tailored retirement plans to match your current financial situation and goals so you can get the best out of retirement.
If you’re planning for retirement, you could be faced with some challenges. Especially if you intend to do a lot of travel. Here are some of the concerns raised by our clients:
When thinking about the perfect retirement income, you should be planning towards meeting your yearly expenses for 25 years or more. With the planning process at IFP, we take into consideration your expected lifestyle and other factors before arriving at a clear-cut picture of your financial future.
There are several things to take into consideration here: your income from above and any expected one-off expenses. Then you need to factor in inflation between now and your life expectancy, consider if you have a desire to leave any legacy. Many things contribute to the size of the fund you will need at retirement. Our experienced and expert advisers can do the necessary calculations required to give you a target figure.
Assess the income and retirement fund you need along with your current financial circumstances. If your savings and existing pension don’t meet these costs, we’ll calculate the difference and tailor a plan in line with your affordability to increase your retirement fund towards your target.
Our retirement planning process consists of five steps:
We need to understand your present circumstances and your vision for the future so we can guide you through planning for a secure and comfortable retirement. We’ll inquire about your retirement goals and your concerns.
We’ll analyse your financial position and calculate any gaps in your provision. We’ll assess your affordability and risk profile before discussing the best way forward.
We’ll then recommend a personalised retirement strategy and create your personal retirement plan for you. This often includes details on how to improve your financial lifestyle while saving and how best manage your money during your working life.
Once you’re satisfied with your personal retirement plan, we’ll start implementing it right away, so you can start looking ahead to retirement with the confidence that there is a strategic plan in place.
Once your plan is up and running, we’ll review it regularly and take into account any changes in your personal circumstances to ensure your plan is working for you. We’ll make any recommendations along the way we feel are right for you, to make sure it fits in on hand to provide advice too.
