Watch our Business Growth webinar with Harvest

Are you thinking about contributing to a pension through your business but don’t know where or how to get started? In this webinar, we go through the key considerations you need to make when deciding a retirement funding strategy, how to decide how much you will invest and how to structure your pension investment portfolio and plan for liquidity.


Overview of insured pension schemes

The insured scheme is a pension provided by an insurance company and they invest in the funds they make available.

Overview of self-administered pensions

The self-administered scheme is a pension set up through a Pensioner Trustee Firm that gives you more flexibility and control over investment options.

Fund accumulation strategies

Harvest will help you decide between an insured or self-administered pension and give advice on much investment risk should you take.

Retirement planning considerations

Receive guidance on how to ensure your pension plan is in line with your overall retirement plan, i.e. how much you fund and what you invest in.

Liquidity and asset allocation

Harvest will discuss how you might structure your pension investment portfolio, plan for liquidity and your pension lump sum entitlements.

Investment options within Self-Administered pensions

For example, cash, equities, property, solar or private equity.
