Executive pension schemes

Executive pension schemes

While many executives may be comfortable with their company’s usual workplace pension, employers may wish to consider separate arrangements for their senior team and key members of staff. No matter what the size of your company or how it is set up, we can help you make greater use of pensions to improve tax efficiency and save for retirement.

Pension schemes to maximise your assets

The way executives and key staff are remunerated may lend itself to greater flexibility in how your employer and employee contributions will work. You might want to consider paying more into your pension pots in order to create a more tax-efficient way of saving and investing, within the current caps set by the government. You may also wish to take a closer look at where the money is invested, and the funds’ performance.

Our experienced financial planning advisers will cover all the options, including but not limited to:

  • Workplace executive pensions
  • Self invested personal pensions (SIPPs)
  • Additional voluntary contributions (IVCs)
  • Pension draw-down
  • Online management tools
