Lysanne McBride, Financial Planner
"A lot of people feel retirement is a minefield. I'm lucky enough to see the genuine difference that advice makes to them and the pressure I can take away."
Join the thousands of people we’ve helped with their retirement previously as Standard Life, and now abrdn.
You’ll receive advice over the phone and online, so we can keep charges as low as possible.
You only need £50,000+ in savings to use our service. Much less than many traditional advice services.
Personal financial advice at a fraction of the cost
And if you’re planning with a partner, you won’t be charged twice.
We’re retirement specialists. And, on average, we’re 50% cheaper than the market over five years, with a £999 one-off fee, plus a 0.5% a year charge for ongoing advice.
What you pay is the same whatever type of retirement support you need, whether you’re:
- Looking to consolidate multiple pensions
- Need to know when you can afford to retire
- Want to take income from your pension
- Thinking about taking tax-free cash
Or all of these.
Plus, we’ll tell you if we don’t think you’ll get great value for money from our service.
“Peace of mind for 50+ customers planning for retirement who want some advice and someone to tell them what to do – without paying over the odds or getting anything too fancy.”
