Sixty year old Jeff Bulled says he is still investing for his retirement, but has switched from pension holdings, to ISAs and property investments.

He explains that this is because he pensions have grown in value significantly, and he is concerned about breaching the lifetime allowance, which was recently reduced to £1 million.

“Like many people my age I’ve had several careers. Now I run my own management training consultancy. But I started off as a director at the British Standards Institute for a number of years. At the time I was lucky enough not only have a decent salary, but access to a final salary pension.”
