Your questions, answered

Learn more about our services

How much will later-life care cost?

Your care needs will depend on things like any medical conditions you have and the type of care arrangement you seek. Our financial planners will work with you to understand your requirements, explain the likely costs, and help you plan for them.

Can I use my assets to fund later-life expenses?

Releasing equity from your property can be a valuable source of income when you’re older, but it isn’t right for everyone. A financial plan offers a high-level view of your entire portfolio, which our experts can use to help you make the best decisions.

What should I do to put my affairs in order?

Thinking about how you’d like your estate to be divided now can make things so much easier for family, friends, and loved ones. Documents like wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney are an important part of this, and we can help arrange these for you.

Do I have enough to achieve my later-life goals?

A financial plan shouldn’t just look at your assets but also what you want to accomplish now and in the future, which can include the legacy you’ll leave. If your current arrangements aren’t working hard enough towards your goals, we’ll make the required changes.

How can I reduce Inheritance Tax (IHT)?

Without proper planning, Inheritance Tax (IHT) can severely diminish your estate, which may mean your wishes can’t be met. Our specialists have long experience dealing with complex IHT issues, so you can rely on us to deliver the right result for you.
