Saving for retirement is not something that’s often talked about in self-employment. The wide majority of my self-employed friends currently don’t make a pension contribution. I am really interested in financial independence and thought it was worth starting a conversation here. It would be great to bring it in some shape or form to Coconut and promote saving for retirement as a best practice.
I recently signed up to Penfold to automate my pension contribution. Penfold is designed for the self-employed and thought that it could be a great partner for Coconut as you both serve the same audience. The cross-sell could be beneficial to both parties.
I love that it allows flexibility, it visually feels aligned with Coconut and I love how easy it is to use, great customer service (also uses Intercom) and the government 25% top-ups are automated.
Anyways just some thoughts! I am curious. Anyone else saving or not saving for retirement? What services do you use?
