It can be tempting to think of retirement as the final financial hurdle; after all, your pensions, savings and investments are now carefully placed to serve you well for the rest of your life.
For most people, this simply isn’t the case.
Life changes. Plans change and goals change. You may have retired before Pension Freedoms came into place, presenting more options for your retirement income. You might be concerned about Inheritance Tax; something you hadn’t considered before retirement. You may have even retired without a financial strategy, and are now worried about the sustainability of your income.
Even if you retired with a perfect financial plan, it may not be fit for purpose for the rest of your life.
