Planning ahead and later life

The future can seem a long way off; the reality, of course, is that it’s not. This is why planning ahead and making the right decisions today will give you and your family peace of mind.

Heading into retirement, knowing your personal and financial affairs are organised in the ways you want them to be means you can focus on the more important things.

You might want to consider protecting your wealth and loved ones by:

- Making your wishes clear in a will

- Preserving your assets for future generations by setting up a trust

- Putting together a plan for long term care fees

- Ensuring your loved ones can make decisions on your behalf, should you lose capacity, by setting up lasting powers of attorney
