At Stan Sherlock Associates, we have experience in a range of financial planning services. We’re specialists in pension planning advice and personal pension planning, and our team can help you properly plan for retirement, no matter your circumstances.
An astounding number of people in the UK have no idea how much they need to retire comfortably, and most don’t know how much they have in pension pots from different jobs over the years, never mind how to access them.
We help you understand exactly where you stand regarding your pensions, and enable you to properly assess your current situation. We use our vast knowledge to identify how much you need to save to meet your goals, and offer tailored pension planning advice built around you and your personal circumstances.
With the best tools to secure your financial future well into retirement, as well as expertise in the various pension and savings opportunities available to you, our role is to help make your money work for you, so you can achieve financial freedom when you retire.
Pension tracing is a common problem in the UK, as people struggle to track the pensions they’ve paid into over the years they’ve been in employment. This is commonplace and leads to lots of people retiring with less than they might otherwise have.
Stan Sherlock Associates helps you trace your pensions as far back as you need, providing advice on how to access your funds as well as the best strategy moving forward. This helps you not only track and manage your pensions more effectively, but gives you greater control of your financial future and retirement plans.
With different pensions in different pots, it’s easy to lose track of your pension funds. Pension consolidation helps you put all your pots in one place, which simplifies pension management giving you clearer access to any fees you are being charged, and at times reducing them. It also presents the opportunity for boosted flexibility, additional investment opportunities and greater financial reward.
At Stan Sherlock Associates, we offer tailored pension planning advice around combining or consolidating your pensions, guiding you on the pitfalls to avoid and best ways to invest when it comes to pension consolidation.
If you hold a Defined Benefit Pension Scheme or Defined Contribution pension with a guaranteed minimum pension or income, any advice you receive will be through a dedicated referral advice service and a specialist within our network.
