Retirement planning

Securing your future

If you start saving for your future now, your retirement plans could have the time they need to flourish. You would also have a better chance of achieving the retirement you deserve.

If you wait too long, you may find the cost of securing a comfortable retirement becomes out of reach.

Your retirement planning is likely to involve building a portfolio of assets, such as pensions, savings and property investments, which could provide you with capital and income to fund your retirement. As an expatriate, it is likely that your retirement planning will focus on growing assets outside South Africa and held in a strong currency.

You may be able to transfer your South African retirement savings out of the country before you reach retirement age and then continue to invest abroad in a tax advantaged way.

Making appropriate provision early on could mean you take control of the age you finish working and help you maintain a high standard of living during your retirement.
