Do you know how much your savings and investments are worth?

Print Friendly

UK’s first ‘retirement planning dashboard’ lets you know precisely what your savings and investments are worth.

How can you know if or when you can afford to retire with pensions and investments values on a rollercoaster?

Or if what you’ve saved and invested will provide you with a comfortable retirement in the current uncertain economic climate? And for how long?

The Government and the financial sector are pushing hard to make a “pensions dashboard” available in the next few years; but ahead of that, has introduced the UK’s first “retirement planning dashboard” – complete with an individual’s live share and fund values.

For the last few years, RetireEasy’s free LifePlan has been giving users an overview of all of their assets – including investments, pensions, savings, business assets and properties – and the income they receive. By using the program, users know when they can afford to retire, how much they can expect to safely take each year from their savings and investments, and whether their current savings will provide them with a comfortable future.

Now, in partnership with Morningstar, a leading provider of independent investment research, the new Premium LifePlan not only provides live updates on stocks and fund values to users of the new Premium service, but subscribers can also model a Lifetime Mortgage, create and compare multiple scenarios of their financial future, radically reduce life insurance costs through a Life Assurance Premium Checker and print user-friendly narrative reports.

Even though state pensions have outstripped inflation due to the triple-lock pensions system, average retirement incomes have fallen since pensions liberalisation in April 2015. Market volatility means it has never been more important for those in or nearing retirement to receive tailored, live updates on the value of their investments if they want an accurate assessment of their situation.

The new Premium Service (available for £3.99 a month) takes the technology considerably further.

New users can also access RetireEasy’s ‘Classic’ and ‘Basic’ services, which do not feature live updates, but provide a number of planning tools that users can choose depending on their needs. The ‘Classic’ service will be available to new users at £2.99 per month and the ‘Basic’ service will be free of charge.
