“It’s difficult to think about pensions when you’re a young man as it seems so far away.

“Years ago, it also felt impossible to navigate the pensions market as the rules seemed to be constantly changing. I was also a bit suspicious of pensions in general thanks to the ‘bad press’ I’d seen over the years,” he admits.

“Being self-employed I needed to find proper income protection insurance. An online search led to Drewberry who are based just down the road from me, in Brighton.”
“My adviser did a fantastic job on the insurance and after my cover was in place they suggested that I talk through my pension arrangements with one of their expert team. It turned out to be one of the most worthwhile conversations I’ve ever had,” says Steve.
