To cut a long story short, I have some money invested in a personal pension fund in the UK, and have now moved permanently to France.
The question is what to do with this fund now that age is catching up with me, leave it to mature in the UK, or transfer it through the QROPS scheme and reinvest it in France, ideally in a "Loi Madelin" scheme?
Has anyone here had the same dilemma, and solved it?

UK Pension fund Aug 4, 2014

I have a UK pension fund and when I opened it I did ask what happens if I transfer abroad. If I remember correctly you can still pay into your UK fund for one year, then you need to transfer it into a fund in the country where you are living. I think that here you can find the most up-to-date info:

I hope this helps.

No need to transfer Aug 5, 2014

As I understand it the transfer is optional, and is usually dictated by the transfer value anyway.
I would be interested to have the experience of people who did transfer the fund, especially regarding taxation as the rules appear open to quite a few interpretations.
