“We moved to France in 2016 with the expectation that we would have to continue working for the next 10 -15 years until we could access our pensions. After attending a Tour de Finance roadshow this all changed. With advice and guidance from our Spectrum financial advisor we were able to bring all of our private and occupational pensions out of the UK and amalgamate them into two QROPs which meant we were fully in control of our pensions. Using Spectrum’s investment partners we saw our pots grow to such an extent that we were able to fully retire after only 5 years in France. We continue to benefit from Spectrum’s expertise during our regular reviews and it’s good to know that advice is only a call or email away as, and when we might need it. I can wholeheartedly recommend that you take the opportunity to talk to your local Spectrum advisor and see what they can do for you.”

Dear Amanda,

Thank you for your prompt and thorough reply.

I am so relieved that the settlement application process is due to go live online in October and that I have all the documentation ready to be uploaded for that process.

I am very impressed by the quality and thoroughness of your advice Amanda and would like to solicit your company’s services to assist in completion of my settlement application process and registration of my company in France as we approach the 31st December deadline.

Furthermore I am looking to sell my property in Australia very shortly with a view to invest in a second home in France. So for me your company could potentially become my “one-stop-shop” for several areas of financial planning in the months ahead.

Best wishes,
