Why focusing on cost has caused more investors to miss out on growth
A recent study by Schroders found that 15% of those already in retirement do not have enough money to live comfortably, and there is a growing concern among those close to retirement that they will struggle to maintain their current lifestyle when it comes time to retire.
Currently, there is a 13% gap between the amount retirees receive each year compared to what those nearing retirement project they will need, and if retirement income doesn’t stretch as far as desired, it is often too late to do anything about it.
In this feature, we look at why some people are retiring with lower savings than they need, yet for many, the amount they need in retirement is often lower than expected. However, we look at how challenging the growth of your pension portfolio and ensuring your portfolio is invested in suitable top performing funds could significantly increase the size of your pension pot and the overall quality of your retirement.
How much could your portfolio have achieved over the past 10 years?
Are you happy with your investment returns over the past ten years or do you think you could have achieved more?
In recent years Global markets have thrived resulting in record levels of investment growth and sizeable gains for many investors. Although such periods of prosperity can be hugely rewarding for investors, it can also mask the inefficiencies of poorly managed portfolios. As a result, some investors are unaware that their portfolios could have returned significantly higher returns if invested more efficiently.
With more people missing their retirement goals we look at how much extra growth they potentially could have achieved over the past 10 years by investing in the most suitable funds that have consistently outperformed their peers.
