Craig is 51 and has been investing for 20 years. He is single, doesn't have any debts and doesn't own property. As well as his investment portfolio, he has a teachers' pension. He was moved into a career average scheme in April, which won't pay out until normal retirement age, but 3/8ths of £37,000 from his former scheme will pay out in 2025, when he will also be entitled to a lump sum of three years' pension. He is considering moving to a country with better weather, such as Spain or Thailand, although probably wouldn't buy property in either.
