Specialist advice areas

A key benefit to our clients who journey with us, is access to experts in specialist areas. This means that they don’t have to go elsewhere for the advice they need to achieve their goals.

Some examples of our specialist advice areas include:

Area 1

Inheritance Tax Planning

Inheritance tax is an unwelcome charge on the assets you have built up over the years.

We are able to help to reduce the impact of this tax using Wills and Trusts and Tax efficient financial plans.

Please note: The Financial Conduct Authority does not regulate will writing or taxation and trust advice.

If you want to know more, please contact us.

Area 2

Wills, Trusts & Tax

Deciding how to structure your Wills or your assets to protect the family in the future is often seen as complex. This is why they tend to be put to one side. We have expert professionals who are able to guide you and help you with this and the tax implications.

Please note: The Financial Conduct Authority does not regulate will writing or taxation and trust advice.

To discuss your needs, please contact us.

Area 3

Equity release

As a homeowner, you may be looking for some capital to make home improvements or adapt your home for later life. Alternatively, you may be looking to supplement your income over the long term. For those people who want to release equity from their homes as part of a wider financial plan, there are a variety of options.

However, there are significant risks associated with borrowing in retirement. Equity release won’t be suitable for everyone. Our experienced financial planners can help you to decide on the most appropriate option to meet your financial needs.

Please note: Your property may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage.

To discuss your needs, please contact us.

Area 4

Medical Professionals

Our financial planners have been working with clients from the medical profession for many years. They have full knowledge of the NHS pension scheme and its nuances as well as the structure of the pay scales.
