Keep thinking about sorting your finances, but not sure where to start? It’s never too late to begin! We’ve put together some handy hints to help you:

Retirement: Are you saving enough?
It’s never too early to start saving for your retirement; the basic State Pension is £159.55 per week (as of April 2017) and is considered far below what most people say they can live on. Two popular ways of saving for retirement are:
• Work place pension
A percentage of your wage is automatically paid into a work pension scheme. Most companies now contribute a percentage of money towards the pension scheme also.
• Personal pension
This is chosen by you with a pension provider where you can contribute regular monthly payments to the pension provider who will invest it on your behalf.
Investment is a vehicle to try and ensure that your money receives a profitable return. You can invest in assets such as shares, bonds, funds or property.
Each investment has a different potential for growth and carry their own capital risk, therefore investments can fall as well as rise and you might not get back the original capital invested. You should think carefully before investing.
