Are you on track for the retirement you want?

Planning for retirement is a journey that is unique to each person. At its core is a seemingly simple question: ‘How much do I need for a comfortable retirement?’ From this derives more nuance and perspective. What is a comfortable retirement? When do you want to retire? How much will you spend in retirement? Do you plan to leave a legacy?

This is where a specialist retirement planner can help. It’s about more than how much you should save each month, it’s about creating a plan that aligns your financial resources with your goals and requirements. Our dedicated team is adept at crafting bespoke retirement plans, helping you plan with clarity and transition with confidence.

Choosing Frazer James goes beyond simply selecting a retirement adviser. It’s about partnering with a team of financial professionals who are deeply committed to helping you achieve and maintain your retirement goals.

Our experience with Frazer James has been positive. Their clear communication, responsiveness, and logical investment process have enabled us to lay what we believe to be a solid foundation for our retirement plans.
Charlotte Marshall – Retired
We received a faultless service. They explained the process in layman's terms and immediately acknowledged any query, the answer following swiftly. We highly recommend them.
Ed Caine – Retired
Having spent a career in finance, including pensions, I thought I knew what I was doing! But as I reached my 55th birthday I wanted to stop working but couldn’t figure out how it was possible, plus the pressure of self managing our pensions was becoming a burden. James and Chris have taken the worry, the complexity and the sleepless nights away and enabled us to retire with confidence and focus on more important things. We cannot thank James and the Frazer James team and their excellent service highly enough.
John Power – Retired
We have been delighted by the personal attention received by Frazer James and their promptness in responding to any queries. Their communication skills and commitment to their clients are first-rate. They always look to ensure good outcomes for investments and to explain their strategy to clients clearly and with a commitment to maximise gains. Their expertise, professionalism, and personal commitment to their clients are better than those we have encountered elsewhere.
John Ward – Retired
