My ServicesHow To Retire Early
Typically, many of my clients may want to invest money on a regular basis to build up a capital sum and ensure security for the future. You might be planning for your retirement.
You Can Do it!
Since I’ve said that
retirement = financial independence, the question becomes: what do I need to become financially independent? (i.e. not having to do a job I no longer want to do).
Financial independence doesn’t necessarily mean being rich.
All it means is that your outgoings over the rest of your life don’t exceed your income plus your savings.
Once you put it in those stark terms, you can break your ambition down into goals.

Pay off debts
Prioritise paying off debts above building up savings, since the interest on debts will far outstrip any savings interest you might earn.
Pay off your mortgage
It’s usually good to make overpayments on your mortgage if you can afford them. The upshot is that you’ll pay off your mortgage sooner, but also pay less overall.
Estimate your total costs over retirement
Make a note of the two figures, Essentials and Discretionary spending. You now need to judge whether your assets can meet two different targets:
Calculate what income you can achieve in retirement
Make an inventory of all your assets, to see where your retirement income could come from
The most important element here will be your workplace or private pension(s)
