Plan your retirement

Schroders Personal Wealth logo

If retirement is still some way off, Schroders Personal Wealth could help you create a flexible and personal plan. If you're retired already or will be soon, they could help you to make more of the potential funds you have.

Receiving expert advice can help to:

  • Start or consolidate existing pensions
  • Establish your retirement strategy and plan when and how much income to take from your pension
  • Review the role of your wider savings and investments.
  • Set an appropriate risk/return profile for any investments made.

Pensions are a long-term investment. The retirement benefits you receive from your pension account will depend on a number of factors including the value of your account when you decide to take your benefits which isn't guaranteed and can go down as well as up. The value of your account could fall below the amount(s) paid in.
