Complimentary Consultation

Receive a no obligation initial consultation

As a member of the FDA you are entitled to a complimentary, no obligation initial consultation with Lighthouse Group Financial Solutions. One of our qualified advisers will ask you about your circumstances and objectives to establish whether you could benefit from advice. Whatever your stage in life, whatever your priorities and lifestyle, we can help you make the most of your money.

Our advisers, backed by the extensive knowledge and experience of Lighthouse Group, one of the best-respected financial advice companies in the UK, are able to provide you with advice on all areas of financial planning, including:

  • Assurance and protection: so you and your family don’t suffer financially should the worst happen
  • Pensions and retirement: taking advantage of the options available to you to enjoy a comfortable retirement
  • Savings and investments: putting your spare cash to good use to build and conserve wealth tax-efficiently
  • Mortgages: many people pay more than they need to. Are you one of them?

As you would expect from the FDA’s provider of financial advice, we understand the hugely complex area of  Civil Service pensions and retirement planning and can explain what provision you already have and how you could supplement this.

  • Will your pension scheme provide you with adequate income in retirement?
  • Have you considered other tax-efficient ways of boosting your income in retirement?
  • Do you have old pension funds, private pensions or investments? If so, are they on track to provide the pension you expect?
  • Can you afford to retire early? What impact would this have on your pension in later life?
  • If you have additional pensions, what is the best way of accessing them?
  • Should you take a tax-free lump sum?
  • When did you last check your investments? Do they reflect your current attitude to risk?
  • Do you need fixed or variable income in retirement?

We run hundreds of seminars each year on topical financial planning issues, including seminars specifically for civil servants and other government employees. Would you benefit from attending a seminar on topics such as:

  • planning for retirement
  • accessing your pension
  • generating income and preserving your wealth
  • savings and investments.

As an endorsed provider, we are able to run financial planning seminars for FDA members in their workplace. Alternatively, you may prefer to hold a surgery, where members book 30-minute, individual, confidential consultations with one of our experienced financial advisers.

Next Seminar: 14th June, 13th September, 6th December 2018 – The events will take place in the Betty Room at the FDA offices which are Elizabeth House, 39 York Road, London SE1 7NQ
