3 reasons why you might not be sorting out your old pension plans

10yearoldphonePension plans you contributed to 10 years ago are just about as effective as a 10 year old mobile phone. So why are you sticking with them?

Here are the three reasons that crop up time and time again:

  • We are all natural born procrastinators. Getting “sort out those old pension plans” to the top of the to-do list is almost impossible. When someone finally gets around to taking action the words I hear time and time again are “this is something I’ve been meaning to get around to for about 3 years”…Get it off your to-do list! Take action now – THIS IS COSTING YOU MONEY EVERY DAY
  • Having to tell an existing adviser you are going to be moving on seems to cause major problems for many people. It really isn’t that big an issue. Most advisers are busy enough and who knows, they may have moved on and no longer consider you to be a 5 star client.
  • You just do not understand how much money is involved…
    • Let’s look at 50 year old William as an example. William plans to retire at 65 and has various existing plans totalling £100,000. By improving the performance of his funds by just 2% per annum (through reducing fees and choosing better investments) the value of William’s fund will increase by nearly £60,000 – to £239,655 (by age 65). Without the 2% increase his fund would be around £180,000.
    • If the improved 2% performance continues through retirement* William will have DOUBLED the amount he can withdraw from his pension… for the rest of his life!


In this example further procrastination is costing William £10.87 PER DAY*!!! Can you afford to lose £10.87 per day?

Don’t put it off any longer. Just use the “request more info” box on the right or text me on 07770 575122 and let’s get the ball rolling.
