Before making any decisions relating to your pension or other investments, you may wish to speak to a financial adviser. You can find one yourself at Unbiased or you can also get financial advice from Standard Life. There is likely to be a cost for getting advice.
If you invest in property funds there are some temporary restrictions in place that may apply to you.
If you invest in property funds provided by Standard Life through your pension plan or bond (either with Standard Life or SL in the fund name) find out what this means for you.
