Ensure you've got enough money saved to live out retirement comfortably.

Invest in your future, today

In the Western World and other developed countries, demographics show a growing ageing population that will bring even more pressure on the State to meet social costs. This, in turn, will put upward pressure on tax in these countries.

So the State Pension probably won’t be enough to see us through retirement.

It is therefore sensible to create a fund to enhance your pension. This can be achieved through a mixture of regular monthly investment into offshore retirement plans and single premium investments offshore (where there is the benefit of tax-free gross roll-up of interest.)

Don't just take our word for it

I have to admit I was a little …

“I have to admit I was a little skeptical when someone called me out of the blue to offer these services. However, from my very first conversation with Ian Leigh he put my mind at rest. The process was quite long because of pension regulations in the UK, but I understood that this would be the case as it was explained to me that this would probably happen. My husband and I met with Ian in our home and reviewed our options, there was absolutely no hard sell. I was an IFA in the UK so had a good understanding of our pensions and Ian was able to provide advice and help on overseas pension options. Would I recommend Ian and Holborn Assets to my friends, most definitely. Thanks for everything you have done to help us in this complicated world of pensions your service was excellent.”

Extremely happy and satisfied.

“From the first contact, we were treated with respect and curtesy. Our contact, Ian Leigh had a wealth of knowledge and walked is through everything in detail and in layman' terms. Ian was fast at responding to our queries and ensured things were chased up with his other colleagues at the same speed. We are glad that our contact was Ian and we would recommend both him and the Company to anyone else.”
