There are a diverse range of reasons that people opt to save outside a pension for their retirement. The major barriers to saving in a pension are seen as risk and complexity but other factors include a desire for greater flexibility and the ability to get a better return elsewhere. Alternative retirement strategies tend to be used to supplement rather than replace pensions, which after all offer a highly tax-efficient approach to retirement planning. However, a major reduction in the annual allowance for pension tax relief from April 2011 will increase the number of high-net-worth (HNW) individuals forced to find alternative strategies to save for retirement.
