It is often said that retirement can be either the longest holiday of your life, or the longest period of unemployment. Your pension will most likely play a big part in which path you follow. Failing to make the most of your investments now can have a massive effect on whether you achieve your retirement goals.
A vast amount of UK pension transfers end up in Malta due to the numerous benefits for British expats retiring to Europe or any of the 65 countries which have a Double Taxation Agreement with Malta.
All firms charge fees, but these can differ greatly from company to company. Typical fees charged include upfront fees on the funds and underlying investments. Many funds also have very high annual management charges, occasionally upwards of 3%. Do you understand the charges? Are there hidden fees on your plan?
That all depends on the answers you give to the following questions during your UK pension review… And more. What existing plans have you have in place, your current country of residence and where you may move to before and through retirement, total value of your pension plans, your tax position and the tax status of the country you reside in and plan to retire in, your priorities, your attitude to risk, do you need a lump sum to pay off a mortgage or even buy that yacht? Your overall financial planning and wealth. Pension planning isn’t the be-all and end-all, but plays an important part of your financial portfolio.
