Patrick Merton is hoping to fully retire within the next five years and as a result is taking a “more thorough review” of his various savings and investments.

“I am one of those people who has been squirrelling away money over a number of years, but I haven’t always had an over-arching strategy,” he says. “It was more of a case of saving what I could, when I could and picking what seemed like the best options. But I am trying to take a step back to ensure not only that I have sufficient funds to retire, but that this money is appropriately invested for my needs.”
