Uncertain times

Since the biggest change to the UK pensions industry in 2015 which introduced greater investment freedom for those with private pensions, expats have had to deal with the uncertainty of Brexit, fluctuating exchange rates, and the collapse of pension funds such as Carillion, BHS and British Steel.

We have also seen the Cash Equivalent Transfer Values of Final Salary pensions hit all-time highs, and watched them fall after the recent interest rate increase.

Moving forward, there is uncertainty about further raids on pension schemes and concerns over businesses guaranteeing their pension funds.

Living overseas, you would be forgiven for not knowing the impact all this has had on your pensions and ultimately your retirement plans.

However, understanding is the key to planning for the future. 

Choosing the right option for your pension funds is now more vital, than ever.

Understand how to use your expat status to your advantage, how to increase your pension and grow your nest egg.

Studies show that taking regular advice from a professional financial adviser can result in a 53% increase in retirement income compared to those who sought no financial advice*

You should always consider speaking to a financial adviser regardless of the size of your pension pot. However, if you have a defined benefit pension that is worth more than £30,000 and you want to transfer it to a defined contribution pension scheme, you are required by law to obtain professional advice.

10.6bn transferred out of schemes

Figures from the Office for National Statistics show a record £10.6bn was transferred out of certain schemes in the first quarter of 2018. Whether this is the right decision for you is hard to say without having a clearer understanding of your present situation and your future investment goals.
