Do you see yourself driving the car of your dreams when you retire? Do you dream to drive daily along the coastline of the seaside town you purchased your retirement home in? Are any of those dreams obtainable? Online investment company, True Potential Investor, has produced a study with findings on attitudes to retirement and how much money is needed to save for the perfect retirement.
Their most interesting finding identifies that, whilst retired, on average men expect to purchase two cars which amount to 27K on average. This is compared with women who expect to purchase just the one car, totalling at 14K. Those amounts are very close to the average amount people save for their retirement. All the more reason to start saving now.
And there are plenty of ways to save up for your retirement, don’t just put all your eggs into one pension pot basket. You could invest in Independent Reserve Ethereum or stocks to earn money that you could put into a single-access ISA which could increase your savings over time. Even cars are a potential investment! While the second-hand car market can be volatile and not for the inexperienced, peer-to-peer lending of a popular car model could reel in some money.
The findings of the study have been collated via an infographic. To save you a click, here is the full infographic made by True Potential Investor. Scroll and see what the numbers are for the retirement life you want to lead.
