Learn more about pensions

Advice for expats on offshore pension legislation will be available at various locations in October from the UK-based independent financial advisors, AISA.

Fully qualified pensions advisors will be available during a free drop-in clinic to be held on October 14 at the Hotel Tivoli Carvoeiro, while a seminar discussing the benefits and risks of offshore pensions will then be held on October 15 at the Hotel Tivoli Marina Portimão.

The events, organised by UK-based AISA, have been created to give foreign residents living in the Algarve the opportunity to meet with a financial advisor without appointment during the drop in clinic, while experts on pensions legislation will provide insight into offshore pensions during the seminar.

Philip Teague, one of the advisors who will be attending the Algarve events, said: “Through our recent dealings with expats in other countries it has become evident to us that people have been sold offshore pensions from local advisers who have not fully understood pension legislation.”

Phillip Teague will be joined by Geordie Bulmer and James Percy-Caldwell as part of the AISA team of advisors.

The events are free to attend, with the clinic on October 14 taking place between 10am and 5pm and the seminar on October 15 beginning at 10.30am.

Meanwhile, for those who are unable to attend the seminar or drop in clinic the experts from AISA will be available to give advice on offshore pension legislation at the BLiP exhibition held at the ExpoArade centre in Portimão on October 16 and 17.
