I went to a pre-retirement seminar in the office few days ago, not having any expectations. Just wanted to see what it was all about.
The average age of all the participants were like 50+ AND I was probably like the most junior staff in the room (majority were senior managers who has worked in BAT for an average of 15 years!!!).
So you can imagine how I feel. Then just before the seminar started, one of my senior manager walked in. He was shocked to see me, and hinted that I was too young to be there!
He was sooo wrong… the first thing the speaker told us was that it is never too young to start planning for your retirement!
Anyway, after a very informative 3 hrs session, I’m starting to doubt whether UK will be a gd place to retire… There’s too many tax imposed by the government. Imagine, when you die, you still have to pay a ‘Inheritance tax’ when leaving assets to your kids!
