Compared with past generations, we are now spending longer in retirement - for many people, well over 20 years.

That's good news of course. The challenge, though, is to ensure that the money we've worked so hard for provides us with the lifestyle we desire.

Retirement is not simply about making ends meet. We want to travel, pursue hobbies and interests, eat well and generally enjoy life.

Planning is the key to help ensure we make the most of our retirement savings. Knowing what your options are, and how to manage taxation and social security issues, is vital to achieving the lifestyle you want.

Whether you are about to retire, or have already done so, your Ogle Advisers adviser can help you understand some of the key issues, including:

  • what to consider when planning your retirement
  • where you can invest your money
  • your retirement income options
