Do you guys have personal retirement savings in addition to pensions in the UK? Here, we’re offered the option of contributing to a company sponsored retirement program (which some companies match up to a small percentage and you are entitled to their contribution after a certain period of time) and also allowed to hold a personal before or after tax retirement account outside of that.
If you have access to both of those options, I would suggest maxing out both, as well as investing in stocks, bonds, etc. Additionally, if you own property, I’m sure that would be worthwhile as well. (Obviously I don’t own property…lol).
But most importantly….don’t forget to stuff your walls with cash, run a prostitution ring and import/export drugs…that’s your REAL retirement sorted. 😉
