A flexible pension for your changing needs

A flexible personal pension plan that can be adapted to suit your changing needs. Whether you’re working, close to retirement or already retired. The Retirement Account is simple, low-cost and lets you bring all your pension pots together under one simple plan.

What are the risks?

Your investment is not guaranteed as the value of your investment can go down as well as up. The way funds have performed in the past is no guide to the future and you might get back less than you put in.

The Retirement Account could be right for you if:

  • You’re a UK resident, aged 18 or over

  • You have at least £20,000 to invest

  • You and/or your employer want to make regular or one-off payments to build up a retirement fund

  • You want to bring your pensions together under one plan

  • You want access to a wide range of investment options

  • You want the flexibility to change your account in the future

  • You might want to pass your pension to your family when you die

  • You want tax planning options to benefit beneficiaries when you die

The Retirement Account may not be appropriate if:

  • You have less than £20,000 to invest at the start

  • You want to contribute to your Pension Savings but your employer already offers an alternative pension scheme. This might be a better option, so you should discuss this with your financial adviser

  • You want to take your whole pension pot immediately in one go

  • You do not have a financial adviser
