Financial planning

Financial planning after retirement. There's a Simple way to take back control.

Are you already retired or about to retire? Do you suspect that your pension arrangements aren’t delivering as they should?

Perhaps your family arrangements have become more complex since you made your plans. Maybe there are concerns about your legacy.

Clarity from complexity

Now is the time to take back control by getting clear, expert impartial advice. Whatever the issue, we have the know-how to guide you towards better arrangements. To work in harmony with your goals for yourself and your family.

After listening and asking the right questions, we’ll:

  • Examine how your different assets, liabilities, income and inheritance plans knit together and match your attitude to risk
  • Advise if there’s a more tax-efficient way for you to take your income
  • Check that your pension arrangements and life assurance policies have the most up-to-date death nominations and trust arrangements
  • Assess how your current wills reflect your wishes and tally with your overall inheritance tax position

By taking a holistic view of your total financial situation, we can also help you take maximum advantage of all the different tax allowances.

Where there’s complexity, we’ll bring clarity. Plus tact and emotional intelligence, because we know that money matters within families are often highly sensitive.
