Hi

We recently sold up in the UK and bought in France. Husband retired and there full time; I am travelling back to London for work short term.

Thinking of moving my DC pension into a QROPS. Have spoken to one advice firm and was planning to go with them until I found out today that they have put their fee up 300% since we first spoke in July....

I have two questions:
How can I work out which firm I should go with/how can I fairly compare fess?
Any thoughts on moving my pot overseas vs. leaving it in the UK?

Thanks

MrsDMDL

    You are better off posting this in the main pension forum. Hardly anyone looks into this sub forum.

    The main advantage to a QROPS rather than a SIPP is that you are outside the lifetime allowance tests. If you don't have that to worry about, then I usually find very little reason to recommend one rather than, say, having a SIPP with a Euro-focused investment portfolio and a Euro bank account from which to make payments.
