Financial Planning Services

Financial planning for your family’s future

The financial planning needs of different generations

Our Financial Advisers are here to help and support your family on its financial planning journey every step of the way, including guidance on inheritance tax. Often when it comes to financial planning, it can feel like a very individual decision. What you’re actually doing is planning for yours and your family’s future.

If the last two years of pandemic have taught us anything, it’s that family is everything, and our desire to protect both ourselves and our families financially has grown to unprecedented levels. All families are different. And that’s why it’s really important to involve your Financial Adviser with the whole family story.

All age groups are researching and understanding the importance of seeking professional, qualified financial advice to help them with their money – be it protection, investing, researching pensions, socially responsible investing or making savings work harder.

Sharing with your children and grandchildren

Once you are a client with us, our advice and support extends to your whole family and we are on-hand to answer questions and offer insights into a full range of financial topics.

Where possible, we really do encourage you to include your children and grandchildren in sessions with us, to not only share family insights and great advice on investments, for example, but is particularly important when discussing Power of Attorney and legacy plans.

Financial education and support

As well as being on-hand for your whole family so they can all enjoy the benefits of financial planning and advice, we also hold a series of webinars on diverse topics including socially responsible investing, investment market updates, how cash flow modelling works and top tips on pensions and savings.

Keeping wealth in the family

With more people concerned with family legacy in light of the pandemic, sharing a family Financial Adviser can be a very effective and efficient way to address the very real financial issues surrounding mortality.

With the rise and rise of house prices over the last three decades and the new pensions freedoms act, the results have been a significant rise in monies handed over to HMRC and the average UK inheritance tax bill currently stands at a staggering £179k!

Not only is the Financial Advisers role to work with you on how to protect and pass your assets (property/pensions/savings/investments etc) down to your family, but a shared ‘family’ Adviser can do this even more powerfully and effectively for you and your loved ones.

One of our Financial Advisers will work with you through the myriad of options including inheritance tax planning, personal tax planning, using personal allowances, pension planning between partners/children, generational gifting, trusts and intergenerational wealth transfer.

Sharing family-wide financial goals will significantly improve any wealth transfer, smooth out the inheritance process, family communication and offer long term peace of mind and security.

All families are different and all families are complex. We are here to help and support your family on its financial planning journey every step of the way.

In spite of a couple of hiccups along the way, which Matthew dealt with quickly & efficiently, the whole process went smoothly. I would not hesitate to use or recommend him for any future advice.” Richard M.
