Mohammed Amin first started investing 40 years ago, when he started work as a teacher. The former partner at PricewaterhouseCoopers is now retired, and uses the income from his investment portfolio to supplement his pension.

He says: “I get a small workplace pension from PWC and my wife now gets the State Pension. Otherwise, we live off the income from our investment portfolios.”

As well as managing both his and his wife’s SIPP and ISA, Amin also takes responsibility for managing the pensions for each of his four children.
