International Pensions

International Pensions

We can advise and help clients with many types of existing pension schemes across a variety of jurisdictions. Most notably we have worked extensively with clients who have existing pension assets in:

Whatever type of pension asset you hold, we can help find and understand your options with respect to combining these assets and/or transferring them somewhere more suitable for your retirement.

Speak to our International Pension Transfer Specialists to discuss your specific scheme type and we can work with you to show the options available to you.


Transferring International Pensions

Not all types of pensions across all jurisdictions are transferrable or offer flexibility to the members. Far from it. Pensions, how they are administered, what you can do with them, what you can access, how they are taxed and how you can withdraw money and/or take your income from them are all characteristics that will vary not only from country to country but also from scheme to scheme.

In some instances, there will be a tried and tested process available to you, in other instances, one may need to be created. In some cases, there simply won’t be an option to transfer at all, but whatever your scheme type and whatever you are looking to try and do with that pension asset, Hoxton Capital should be your first port of call to help you find out what you can and can’t do.


Withdrawing money from your International pensions

Whether or not you are looking to transfer, we can help you understand the specifics of your existing scheme and obtain clarity for you on how and when you can start to take income from your international pension.

Sometimes trying to make sense of documentation and information from a scheme that doesn’t use your native terminology (and perhaps even language) can be stressful and confusing – our international pensions advisors can go through any documentation with you and make sure you are clear on what benefits you have and what you can do with them.
