Should I save into a Lifetime Isa and would my Help-to-Buy Isa be safe place to invest money in 2016 if I do? Workers’ pension deductions triple to 2. The Devon home that looks like a luxury treehouse!

How to invest for the best returns in retirement: Reckless risk-taking or playing too safe can run your pot dry By Tanya Jefferies for Thisismoney. Many retirees are at risk of bungling their pension finances by falling into one of two easily avoidable traps, according to new research. A ‘risk-averse retiree’ who believes they are playing it safe by moving pension funds into cash accounts and a ‘reckless retiree’ who chases high returns are both at risk of running out of money in old age, says the study. 100,000 pension pot in either of these ways, then explains how a ‘rational retiree’ with well-diversified investments has a much better chance of enjoying a comfortable retirement.
