Pension and Retirement Planning


These days it's vital to have a plan for your retirement and how you are going to afford to live. In the future, we're not going to be able to rely on the state or our employer to look after us into our old age.

You have essentially three options to boost your pension pot and maximise your income at retirement:

• Increase the amount you pay into your pension
• Pay into it for longer
• Maximise the return on the money you have invested in it

We believe the most effective option is a combination of all three! We can give you the answers to the big pension questions like:

  • How much do I need to save for retirement?
  • How long will my pension fund last if I spend X euro per year?
  • How does pension tax relief work?
  • What if I have a pension from a previous job?

We'll assist you:

  • Work out how much you can afford to save from your pre-tax income
  • Review the charges on your pension to ensure whatever you are saving is not being eaten up by commission and fees!
  • Build a portfolio of investment funds based on the level of risk you are comfortable with.


At Hopkins Financial Consultants, we understand the need to review and account for pension performance at least once every year. With all that’s going on in the financial markets, it can be hard to work out exactly what it means to you and your family. We spend a lot of time researching pension funds and have direct access to the leading fund managers in Ireland. This means we keep on top of whats happening in the investment markets and can keep you better informed on your pension and where its invested.

Our pension clients receive an Annual Pension Review with a breakdown of their pension performance and a review of the continued suitability of their fund choice. If something needs amending, it'll be done with a minimum of hassle or delay.
