We tailor our services to meet the individual needs of each GWM USA client. Often, but not always, the overarching aim is to build a plan to achieve a perfect retirement. Depending on what stage of the financial planning process each client has reached will determine which solutions will be needed.
Transferring your UK private pension isn’t a new choice, it is however, an option that is often not discussed between client and adviser. However, with transfer values continuing to increase, many expats are considering this option as they search for greater investment freedom.
By maximising your international employment status and consolidating your UK pensions into one investment vehicle, you can create a plan which allows you to draw income through retirement to suit your needs, potentially improve your tax efficiency and pass more on to your loved ones.
You are required by UK law to take qualified advice before any DB transfers above £30,000 can take place. Although with something as important as your retirement plans it could be argued that any transfer, regardless of size should only be completed after receiving advice.
By transferring your UK based pension scheme, you can regain control of your investments. As a result you can choose which currencies and locations to invest in and when to start drawing an income from your pension.
A 401(k) plan is an employee sponsored pension scheme that allows members to defer a percentage of their income which typically remains tax free until its future withdrawal.
Such plans are often left behind when moving to a new company. If you choose to let your 401(k) remain dormant, you will no longer be able to add to this and naturally your previous employer’s contributions will cease too.
There are several more favourable options that should be considered such as a 401K rollover, this involves moving your
existing balance without incurring any tax or penalty payments to your new employees 401(k) scheme. You may also choose to transfer your cash into an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) which can provide wider investment freedom and greater income flexibility during retirement.
