Pensions and retirement advice

Helping you through your career and beyond

Take a step towards your dream retirement

When you’re thinking about retirement, you might be dreaming of travelling the world or spending more time with your loved ones. What you might not be considering is the income you’ll need to fund your later years.

At Wesleyan Financial Services, we can help you build a plan for your retirement and beyond. Looking at your whole financial picture, we’re here to guide you down the road to retirement.

Your lifetime adviser

When you come to us for guidance, we'll pair you with a Specialist Financial Adviser. An adviser who is local to you, understands your aspirations and even specialises in your profession.

If you have an ideal retirement in mind, we can create a personalised plan based on the age you want to retire and the amount of income you might need. We'll review your plan annually, to keep you on track as you count down the days.

And if your goals, finances or circumstances change, your adviser is only ever a phone call away.
