Am I ready for life beyond work?

Highly driven individuals don‘t work one day and retire the next. It‘s more of a “glide path“ as they go from highly engaged to rarely engaged. Planning this very personal transition is where our wealth management team can help you get the balance right.

And many entrepreneurs never really retire at all. There’s no need to slow down just because you’re getting older, but you might want to shift your focus. You could see the world, pursue a new hobby, or become an angel investor. But how will you fund your new lifestyle? Most of us underestimate the income we need to do the things we want. Start your retirement financial planning now so you’re one step ahead.

How will I pass on my wealth?

It can be hard to find the right balance between enjoying your wealth now and setting some aside to pass on to your loved ones. What will your legacy be? How will you make sure wealth transfer happens in the way you want?
