1. UK Pension Options
Your pensions are probably your biggest asset. However, 9 out of 10 expats have no idea how their money is invested, what level of income they will receive or what hidden fees they are paying every year to some expensive and out-dated pension manager such as Aegon, Friends Provident, Friends Life, Scottish Widows, Prudential etc etc etc.
Did you know you can actually consolidate all your UK pensions into one manageable pot? Take control of how and when you withdraw pension income as opposed to receiving a nominal amount of £27.89 each week which you somehow need to transfer to Thai Baht?
In other words, a UK pension transfer can simplify your life and grant you a superior retirement income. Harrison Brook specializes in providing expert advice on QROP & SIPP options to help clients gain access, control and full visibility of their hard-earned capital. See UK Pension Transfer – QROPS to learn more.
2. Generating Retirement Income from Existing Capital
Reaching retirement is an achievement and most people will have built up a ‘pot’ of money to fund themselves and their partner. However, if you just make withdrawals on this capital the pot will diminish very quickly. The best way to manage this is to have your capital growing each year meaning you can live off the growth rather than just depreciating your original pot value.
By working with you and managing your situation Harrison Brook can help you ensure this pot provides the level of income your desire through all of your retirement, not just the first 5 years. Also with simple withdrawals available on a weekly or monthly basis to your account in Thailand getting access to your money when you need it has never been easier.
3. International Retirement Planning
Harrison Brook offers the perfect solutions for those who wish to be organized for their financial future. However, for every year that passes, achieving your retirement goal becomes increasingly more expensive. The key is to begin saving whatever is comfortable for you.
