Money Matters: Sept/Oct 2021 Editions
 

Welcome to our September/October 2021 issue.

Inside, we look at how having a financial plan in place early on can make it easier to manage your money further down the line. It’s never too early to make a financial plan. The sooner you work out your goals and start following a plan to achieve them, the more likely you are to succeed. There are three key questions to ask yourself when building your financial plan. Don’t forget: vision without action is merely a dream.

We spend our working lives building towards retirement. Choices we make today will have a big impact on the quality of our lives later on. On page 04 we explain the changes made to UK pensions in 2015 and what they mean for your choices when it comes to funding your lifestyle in retirement. The decisions surrounding when, why, and how you decide to retire will be very personal and will largely depend on your individual circumstances.

Understanding inflation is an important factor when it comes to your financial success. If you don’t factor inflation in when deciding where to put your money – whether that’s savings accounts or investing – you could find your wealth shrinks over the years. The easing of lockdowns has boosted consumer confidence and unleashed pent-up demand. 

Your pension is more than just a retirement fund, it can also contribute towards building a better world. As we have been witnessing in recent months and years, climate changes are occurring in every region and globally. A new landmark report from the United Nations on the state of climate science has highlighted modern society’s continued dependence on fossil fuels. Its effects are already apparent as record droughts, wildfires and floods continue to devastate communities worldwide.

Understanding every aspect of your wealth

Whether you are clear on your financial priorities or feel you need to be pointed in the right direction, we’ll work with you on your financial plans and help you to realise your wealth and lifestyle ambitions. We hope you enjoy the useful intel and articles in our latest issue.
