If you already have a pension...

At Channel One we have over 50 years’ collective experience advising on pensions and investments.

It’s often the case that our clients leave their pension planning until they are ready to draw their benefits, there is nothing wrong with that and we are happy to talk to you whatever stage of planning you are at. You may simply want some reassurance that your pension is on course to provide your needs or you may want to consolidate some of your plans now before you reach retirement.

Whatever your needs we will be happy to talk to you either at your home or in the offices at Ledston Luck. And if you don’t have a pension yet but would like one, please click here.

Are You Looking To Consolidate Your Existing Pension Investments?

Many people have built up several pension pots throughout their career – over time these multiple pension pots can be difficult to keep track of and manage. A simple solution is to consolidate these pensions into one Personal Pension making managing your retirement savings much more straightforward.

At Channel One we have the permissions to advise on Occupational, Defined Benefit and Final Salary Pension Schemes as well as Section 32 and existing personal pensions.

Advantages of consolidation:

  • Combined view of all your pension savings allowing easy management and less paperwork
  • A market leading range of investments, giving you a greater choice of where to invest your money
  • Full control over your pension savings – you choose what to invest in and when

Flexibility in taking your pension benefits – when the time comes to access your pension you can take all your fund in one go, take smaller lump sums and/or take a regular income. You can also use all, or part, of your fund to purchase an annuity.
