I'm in my late 30s, have a mortgage, a baby, no outstanding loans or credit cards, three pensions, and two Cash ISAs. I’d like to invest to renovate our house, help fund our children’s education and help them onto the property ladder, and retire as soon as possible! I considered a LISA but thought I might be better paying off more of the mortgage. I'm also confused about using a platform for a Stocks and Shares ISA. Any advice would be appreciated! Keep up the good work, I’m impressed with how refreshingly approachable your website is.

I have two pension pots, one of which is a stakeholder - this one is currently worth £120,000 - the other is approximately £50,000. I will be 60 in 4 years time and am anxious that my pots may not be growing fast enough. I currently input £300 per month into the Stakeholder. I do not intend to access either of these accounts until I am 65. Can I combine both these pensions, or should I leave them as is? I would appreciate an opinion on this. Many thanks, Maggie

Hello, I already have a workplace pension. Can I also have a private pension? If so, I have a LISA as well. Can I have all three in place?

Baillie Gifford is closing down its Investment Trust ISA and I am being forced to move elsewhere. Do I need to use an Investment Trust for my ISA? What is the most tax-efficient way to access Baillie Gifford's Scottish Mortgage where the majority of Investment Trust ISA was held?
