Making your investment work for you

Managing Your Cash in Retirement

Now you have reached retirement age, it’s time to relax and enjoy the rewards of your labours. The mortgage is paid off, your children are independent, and you have saved a sum of money which will supplement your New Zealand Superannuation and allow you to enjoy a comfortable life.

Your money, your way

At FMT, we understand the need to invest with confidence, with the added flexibility of drawing down your funds as you need them.

That’s why we’ve created our Managing Your Cash in Retirement solution.

This facility allows you to get all of the benefits that come from investing with First Mortgage Trust, together with the ability to access your money as and when you need it.  Your arrangements can be reviewed at any time and at no cost, meaning the facility can respond to your changing circumstances in real time.

We have a Managing your cash in retirement calculator so you assess how long you might be able to drawdown a fixed monthly amount from your investment before your savings have been fully utilised.

Key benefits of the Managing Your Cash in Retirement facility

  • You can make regular withdrawals to supplement your superannuation.  We pay directly into your bank account on the 10th or 20th of the month
  • You can still make larger withdrawals for bigger ticket items like holidays, cars or house repairs by simply letting us know how much you wish to access.
  • You can take comfort in the knowledge that investments made by the Funds are secured by first registered mortgages over land and buildings in New Zealand with relatively conservative Loan to Valuation ratios.

Client Feedback

"People want consistently attractive returns from their investments, but they don’t want their money locked away and out of reach should they need regular top-ups to help meet their living expenses or if they want to make larger withdrawals for big ticket items."
