Whilst the future is uncertain, it is more reassuring to face it with a clear financial plan which helps you organise your finances to make the most of your money and deal with situations you may not have foreseen.
Our team of Chartered Financial Planners are not only experts with money, but also have long-standing experience of advising individuals, couples and families, companies and trusts. With their guidance, you can have the confidence that you have a strategy for whatever the future might bring.
We will help you focus on the lifestyle you want, the income you will need and who might be depending on you. Your financial planner will also help you understand the choices available to you now and how they might affect what you can do in the future.
Our financial planning service is predominately fee based and we will provide and agree with you any fees before any work is undertaken.

AIM Portfolio Service
Our Alternative Investment Market (AIM) IHT service was launched in 2004 and is designed to help you take advantage of the generous tax breaks that are available to qualifying small businesses. Business Property Relief (BPR) was introduced in 1976 to ensure that inheritance tax (40%) wasn’t paid on small business shares on death.
Our AIM IHT service offers you the opportunity to invest in a managed portfolio of shares that we believe will qualify for BPR and so should be free of inheritance tax after only 2 years, provided you own them at the date of death.
AIM investments tend to carry a higher investment risk than other equities and therefore this service is only suitable if you can invest £100,000 and are willing to accept a higher degree of risk.
