What We Do
One of the biggest goals in life is a happy, comfortable retirement. At whatever age you plan to stop working, you will want to ensure you have enough money to go with your new-found freedom. Perhaps your aim is to have paid off your mortgage, go travelling or buy that dream holiday home, but it's worth knowing that even the small financial decisions you make between now and then could affect your ability to retire when and how you want.
Typically, many of our clients may want to invest money on a regular basis to build up a capital sum for the future. You might be planning for your retirement, looking to generate investment income to top up your pension, saving for a deposit to buy a property or buy a holiday home, providing for school fees, or simply creating a secure nest egg for the future.
We all look forward to the day when we can stop or cut down on the amount of time we spend at work and all of the things we’d like to do once we’ve retired. If you're facing a pension shortfall or need to meet an unexpected expense, equity release may be an option to consider.
Generally, most of us think of saving as putting money aside with no risk, possibly using a bank deposit account, whereas investing conjures up the thought of taking some risk with our money for potentially greater returns. Essentially, both are about creating wealth for the future.
Inheritance Tax Planning
Contrary to the belief of some, Inheritance Tax not only affects the very rich, but other people may be liable without realising. Few taxes are quite as emotive – or as politicised – as Inheritance Tax.
