Welcome to our latest edition. Are you fed up with your nine-to-five? There are many factors that can influence when someone decides to retire.

New research reveals the key steps people have taken to embrace early retirement and examines the costs and benefits of doing so.
Welcome to our March/April 2022 magazine. Inside, we look at why now is the time to make sure you protect your wealth.

As higher inflation looks set to persist throughout 2022, on page 09 we consider why finding ways to generate a return on investments greater than inflation will be a key investment theme – otherwise your wealth falls in real terms.
