Long-term investing 'key for good retirement'

15 February 2008 / by None
Those people who invest long-term into a pension plan will benefit from optimum growth on their investment, an expert has said.

Financial services company Edward Jones is to hold a free seminar in Guildford on February 27th to help consumers make the best choices for the retirement planning.

Commenting on the issue, Brian Potter, a financial adviser and stockbroker with Edward Jones in Guildford, said: "It's never too early to start investing for retirement. The earlier investments are made, the more time they have to grow and reap the proven benefits of a long-term investment strategy. Investing for the long-term is really the key to successful retirement planning."

He stressed that successful retirement means doing more than just paying into a plan every year and that the best results will be achieved by "clear objectives" and a well planned saving strategy.

Mr Potter noted that, given the current pressure on the state pension schemes, it is important for consumers to be fully aware of their pension opportunities.

Edward Jones recently launched a new 'At-A Glance' statement aimed at making sense of investing.
