“Don’t simply retire from something;
have something to retire to.”
Harry Emerson Fosdick
Personal Retirement Plan
Have your investments work for you. We are a team of qualified, experienced advisors that will maximise your retirement income by investing your pension assets and then giving your returns back to you. We will also help you to stay on track by providing with periodic portfolio reviews. Get back to doing the things you want to do.
The Advantages of our Drawdown Product
Our drawdown product is a way of getting income by drawing money from your pension pot, while allowing your pension fund to continue growing. Instead of using all the money in your pension fund to buy an annuity, you leave your money invested and take a regular income directly from your funds.
Every year, you are entitled to a percentage of your total invested assets. This percentage is set by the pension legislation and may be received at a frequency that is comfortable for you, whether it is monthly, quarterly, semi-annually or annually.
The percentage rates set by the Bermuda Pension Commission are:
• Ages 55 to 64: 3% yearly maximum drawdown
• Ages 65 to 69: 7% yearly maximum drawdown
• Ages 70 to 80: 10% yearly maximum drawdown
• Ages 80+: 25% or $10,000 yearly maximum drawdown, whichever is higher.
Use this dashboard to see what your drawdown benefits could look like compared with annuities.
