Condotel Investments in the Philippines set for big boost from new UK pension bonanza
As from October 2008 UK investors will be able to unlock savings trapped by life insurers and transfer this Protected Rights money into a Self Invested Personal Pension plan to purchase condotel investment properties in the Philippines
The British Minister for Pensions Reform Mike O’Brien announced on June 27 that following changes to the pension rules in the UK, investors will be given the freedom to take control of their investments from October 2008. The minister, said: “These changes will give more flexibility and investment choice to people taking an active interest in the management of their pension funds. It will also be easier to transfer funds between different types of pension schemes, and to consolidate pension rights in one place.”
This will include the flexibility to unlock protected rights money and transfer it into a Self-Invested Personal Pension [SIPP] that has a wider range of investment opportunities.
The move affects around 10 million people contracted out of the state second pension [S2P], formerly known as SERPS, since the option was introduced in 1988. Their national insurance contributions were then diverted into personal pensions rather than staying in the state system. Much of these assets are being held in poorly performing with-profits or managed funds that have suffered years of below average returns few financial advisers expect to improve. It also affects hundreds of thousand more who moved final-salary schemes away from employers and until now had to invest funds with life insurers.
Average earners could have built up funds of at least GBP £25,000 – GBP £250,000 if they had stayed contracted out since 1988 and millions of people will have dormant pensions that have been stuck in paltry life insurance funds that may have been tied up for years or even forgotten about.
Many people will now need to review their pension planning strategy in order to maximize the opportunity.
