ClearMoney September/October 2017

Welcome to our latest issue. Will you be one of the six million men and women workers who will have to work an extra year before retiring after the Government announced that it would be extending the retirement age to 68? 

We look at the new plans announced in July this year and how they could affect you. A combination of increases in life expectancy and the growing number of retirees relative to the working-age population means that individuals will now have to save harder for their own retirement. 

With historic ultra-low interest rates on savings, many investors over the past decade have turned to income-paying funds as an alternative to cash-based savings.

We consider how our changing life plans and priorities mean we now encounter varying income needs and goals throughout our life and, when investing, how certain innate behavioural traits influence our decision-making. New research finds consumers could be missing out on thousands of pounds in retirement by not shopping around for their pension product. This means their pension pot may not stretch as far as they hope it will, yet a significant proportion of people expect their retirement income to cover much more than just the essentials.
