Important information

There are some important things you should know about our Drawdown Pension:

  • It’s a stock market-related investment – your client isn’t certain to make a profit.
  • If the government changes the way the plan is taxed, it may affect how much your client gets back.

Flexi-Access Drawdown

This offers your clients income flexibility and tax planning opportunities.

Variable income can be taken each year with no upper or lower limits. There’s no requirement to take any income at all, if only tax-free cash is required at outset. Tax-free cash can be taken on a monthly basis, providing full flexibility.

Phased Drawdown

This offers greater income flexibility, effective tax planning by only crystallising funds as required and minimising exposure to tax on death.

We can provide Phased Drawdown quotations to help with your planning and recommendations.

The retirement landscape has changed. Despite economic uncertainty, your clients now have more choice and control over their retirement income.

Recommend a bespoke solution by blending our retirement income products into one simple account. This gives the best level of security and flexibility – meeting your clients’ needs now, and for years to come.

Impartial Retirement Modelling

Looking for options that you can easily present to your client? We’ve got a free tool that helps you create, view and analyse different retirement scenarios.

It’s impartial and gives a snapshot of your client’s retirement future. With a visual scenario – it helps you compare single product and blended solutions. Once you’ve input some basic details, you’ll get a PDF report that you can share with your client
