Retirement Planning

Expat life in the UAE brings with it many opportunities, but it does come at a cost. As well as the expenses associated with moving abroad, it’s also important to consider that you won’t benefit from a state pension when you retire. Getting ahead of the game and preparing for your retirement early is the best way to enjoy your later years – and financial adviser Mike Coady is here to help.


What can expat retirement planning do for me?

You only get one chance to make the most of your retirement, and Mike Coady can help you prepare thoroughly for what lies ahead. An award-winning wealth management expert in Dubai, Mike has over 25 years of expat retirement planning experience and is an expat expert living in the UAE.

Drawing upon his extensive expertise, Mike will work with you to formulate a watertight retirement plan, helping you organise your assets and make your money go further. He’ll help you make the most of your retirement in the UAE.

Why is financial planning for retirement important?

Planning for retirement is always a good idea, but it’s especially important if you’re an expat. Because you don’t have a state pension to fall back on, it’s vital that you prepare ahead of time and save enough money to allow you to enjoy retired life. The earlier you prepare, the happier you’re likely to be when your working days are over.

Retirement Investment

Having long term investments for your future is a good decision. It is all about saving a small amount over a long period of time. This could be investments into savings plans, long term investments or even into real estate. Whatever the investment path you choose, it is better than leaving it a few more years.

Saving for the Future

Saving for your future and ensuring you have everything in place is a good start on your path to financial freedom. You should enjoy your retirement days without having to penny pinch and worry about that bank balance. Start saving for your future and the future you will thank you for it!
