Longhurst - SmartRetire

Imagine your ideal retirement.

A dignified life. One of financial independence. The ability to travel, socialise, and spend time with your family, without having to look over your financial shoulder.

Our SmartRetire® proposition provides you with a life-long retirement and lifestyle planning service, engineered to give you control and confidence over the important decisions you need to make prior to and during your retirement.

Your SmartRetire® journey is overseen by a Chartered Financial Planner, and begins with a detailed examination of your unique personal situation. Here we will talk through areas including your income and capital needs now and in the future, your lifestyle ambitions, your family and legacy ideals, and thoughts on your later life expectations.

We will then create a personalised SmartRetire® plan, underpinned by a lifetime cash-flow forecast, which we will discuss with you before agreeing on the best steps to take next.

SmartRetire® will also cover every other aspect of retirement planning, including estate planning, inheritance tax mitigation, and, where appropriate, care fee planning scenarios, which may lay ahead for all of us.
