Why has there been such a flood of early retirements among the over 50s since the pandemic hit us (see my last post)? An article in the Daily Telegraph attempts to find the answers through interviews with experts and some who have decided it’s worth losing a little income for the sake of getting more from their diminishing years. Stewart Sanderson, head od private clients investment management firm Brooks Macdonald tells the newspaper many of his clients didn’t see their children for long period and if they has properties abroad, opportunities to take advantage of them were thin on the ground. So they began musing on using their wealth rather than sitting on it – to enjoy life while they were still fit. “There’s definitely a view that if I don’t spend this money while I can, what’s the point of having it”, he says.
