Shan Lancaster, 63, lives in Brighton and is investing for a self-funded retirement. “I’ve been a freelance writer for much of my working life so I don’t have a big corporate pension to look forward to,” she explained.

“I think of myself as semi-retired now. I paid off my mortgage seven years ago. This gives me more freedom to choose work I enjoy, rather than what pays the best, so I mainly research and write on arts related subjects these days.”
