New Year’s Resolutions you need to keep… The start of a New Year is the time when we all resolve to change something – whether it’s to lose weight or join a gym – but what about ensuring our finances are fit and healthy? At Hamnett Wealth Management, we think now is the ideal time to review your existing financial arrangements. Here are our 3 suggested resolutions for 2017:
• Take control of your pension arrangements – Whether you’re looking to set up a pension, save money on annual management charges or to reduce fees on expensive pension plans, make sure you review your current pension arrangements to see whether they are likely to help you achieve your retirement goals.
• Maximise your tax-free saving allowances – The 5th of April is just around the corner – the date by which you should have finalised any tax-efficient savings plans and pension issues. If you have money to save, but have yet to use up your ISA allowance, make sure you take advantage of this tax-free form of investment. Equally, ensure you’re making the most of allowances on your pension contributions to cut your tax bill.
• Review your investments – Investment values have risen well in the last 12 months but volatility has been high. With fast changing political events affecting markets, it is imperative that your portfolio and pensions are strategically invested to profit from uncertainty and protect yourself from market shocks.
