Expat Financial Advisor

Expats living in the UAE don’t benefit from a state pension when they stop working, instead simply receiving gratuities from their employer – which usually aren’t enough to sustain a happy and fulfilling retirement. To help you prepare for retirement the right way, Mike Coady can provide thorough, tailored expat pension advice.


What can Expat Pension Advice do for me?

Mike Coady is an award-winning provider of wealth management advice in Dubai, with over 25 years’ experience serving a range of clients both in the UK and the UAE. An expat expert who lives in the emirate himself, Mike is intimately familiar with the ins and outs of expat pensions, and is here to offer tailored advice – not a ‘one size fits all’ plan.

From selecting a tax efficient pension plan to helping you invest wisely in the run-up to your retirement, Mike’s trusted advice can help you live out your retirement the way you’ve always wanted to. Book a Discovery Meeting with him today to get started.

What is a QROPS Pension?

QROPS stands for Qualifying Recognised Overseas Pension Scheme. QROPS pensions are foreign schemes specifically designed for expats which meet requirements set out by HMRC. If you already have a UK pension, you can transfer the funds within it to a QROPS pension, allowing you to pick up where you left off once you land in Dubai.

As well as helping you select a tax-efficient QROPS scheme, Mike can ensure that your pension is protected by a ‘double taxation treaty,’ allowing you to relax and enjoy your retirement when the day comes.

    What is a Discovery Meeting?

    Discovery Meetings are initial introductory consultations, giving you the opportunity to meet Mike and begin discussing your goals with him. You’ll have 30 minutes to ask any questions you have about the service and get to know Mike.

    Will I lose my state pension if I move abroad?

    If you move abroad permanently, you’ll no longer receive pension credit. Plus, because you won’t receive a UAE state pension, it’s well worth seeking the advice of a financial professional and enrolling in a new pension plan.

    What happens to a QROPS pension if I move back to the UK?

    A QROPS pension can be left alone and still be drawn if you move back to the UK, but many instead opt to transfer it to a SIPP (Self Invested Personal Pension). SIPPs can be more cost efficient; Mike can help facilitate the transfer from a QROPS pension to a SIPP.
