Managing and maximising

Now is the time in your life to build on the foundations you've created and make sure your money is working hard for you.

For many, these years will be the peak earning years - both partners may be back at work, you might have made a real dent in the mortgage and have extra money to invest, or maybe you're considering renovating. Perhaps you have an investment property or have received an inheritance or a redundancy payment.

On the other hand, there may have been an illness or injury, a divorce or parents in need of additional care and assistance. Now is also the time to get serious about retirement planning and seeking professional advice.

How you manage these times, good and bad, will depend on the plans and strategies you have in place. The decisions you make today will carry forward to retirement, so it's important you understand the options available to you and that you get the right advice.
