Enquiries into existing policies
We undertake in-depth, high level investigations into your existing plans to fully understand what you have and to ensure they are the most suitable policies for you. We contact product providers on your behalf to collect all the information, so we can accurately summarise your current financial position. With this information and having found out about you and your requirements earlier we can accurately give you advice as to what you should do for your future financial planning. This ensures it is advice you can trust.

This advice is based on our many years experience as advisers and ensures you get professional, sound, advice every time. Further meetings can be organised if needed.
We complete all the paperwork and deal with all the administration to set up your overall financial plan and we keep you informed of the progress. This takes the stress out of setting up any financial plans. We issue detailed written reports explaining the advice we have given to you so that you have a written report of your overall financial plan.

A recent client had many different pension schemes that he had accumulated over many years, with our detailed research we were able to advise on how they had been performing and how to improve the returns from these pensions. We advised to amalgamate his pensions into one contract, which gave him more flexibility as to when he could retire and the amount of retirement income he would get.
By completing this review and making the necessary changes he was able to retire 4 years earlier than he thought would be possible
A recent client of ours using the creating and protecting wealth system saved over £10,000 in corporation tax charges, as we were able to re-organise his pension planning through his company and ensure that the correct tax reliefs were being claimed by his company.
