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.)

Mark Powsney and Holborn guide financial novices

“Being a person with very little understanding of the financial markets and pension needs I was completely lost as to what to do with all my individual pension funds. Mark and Holborn have completely satisfied my needs. They have effectively held my hand and shown me what I have, where it is and have then helped me to consolidate it and start making it work for me and increase my future capabilities. I would recommend Mark Powsney and Holborn Assets to anyone in Dubai that either wants help to sort out their pensions or has spare savings that they would like to grow for them.”

Excellent performance. Excellent service mindset.

“I am delighted with Mark's performance and have no hesitation in endorsing him for recognition of his hard work.”
