Our Value

Naturally, no two clients or recommendations that we make, are the same but as an example of the value of advice, research* shows that the average UK income in retirement is £18,000 per annum. However, the average for those who set an income target and used a financial adviser is £24,175 in retirement. Put another way, by not working with a financial adviser, a client can potentially lose out on an extra 41% or as much as £147,147 over the course of a 21-year retirement.

Besides providing leading edge investment and insurance solutions, our clients tell us that we add value to them at a review by:
  • Checking how any personal changes in income or capital wealth may impact their current provisions or tax situation

  • Utilising their existing provisions first before considering starting a new plan

  • Explaining in simple terms how the UK Government Budget announcements impact them by way of welfare or income, capital or inheritance tax changes

  • Reminding them so that they do not miss out on valuable allowances that once they are gone, they are gone forever (e.g. ISAs)

  • Making sure they do not miss out on getting money back that might be owed (e.g. tax relief on pension and retirement planning)

  • Rebalancing their assets so they are always comfortable with the risk they take when investing, while ensuring they don’t miss out on potentially better returns

  • Reassuring them that they are not unnecessarily taking too much risk with their current assets

  • Placing their assets the right name ownership and tax wrapper so that they legally and ethically ensure they do not pay too much tax when they want to spend them
