What is the difference between Wealth Planning & Investment Management?
Wealth Planning involves building a relationship with our clients to completely understand their goals and objective; their financial circumstances; and how they see their future unfolds. This information gives us the ability to provide the best tools and a suite of services to a client including advice for pension provisions, tax efficient savings, and investment management. Investment management is the service of managing a portfolio of investments for example stocks, bonds, funds, private equity and commodities, aiming to achieve agreed investment goals such as capital growth. Investment Management is most effective when working as part of an overarching wealth plan.

Do you provide inheritance tax (IHT) planning services?
Yes. We provide advice on all aspects of a client’s financial situations, we can help assess any potential IHT liability and provide general advice regarding the options that help mitigate and/or pay the liability. We normally work with a clients’ tax adviser to maximise the effectiveness of IHT planning. Where required, we can introduce a client to an appropriate tax specialist.

What can I expect from your Wealth Planning service?
