We work closely with solicitors who specialise in areas such as conveyancing, divorce law, business law and family law.

Though we can’t give you specific financial advice, we are able to offer general investment advice. We can work with you to provide an overall picture of the opportunities that may be open to you, then discuss your financial aims and objectives and how these might best be achieved.
Together we can work towards simple tax planning measures, either leaving your current investments as they are or completely restructuring your portfolio.

When you are in the process of planning for your future, you may decide to invest in life insurance.
A life insurance policy will pay out a lump sum of money to your estate in the event of your death. Some policies will also pay out if you have a serious accident or receive a terminal diagnosis. The money paid out by the policy can be used by your family to pay off their mortgage or cover general expenses.
This type of insurance can able be particularly valuable for business owners. If you were to fall ill and were unable to manage your business for a significant period of time, a life insurance policy pay out would provide the funds needed to ensure the survival of the business.
If you would like to explore these possibilities further with the assistance of a professional, We can refer you to an insurance professional who will be able to talk you through the options available.
Many people find that health and dental insurance gives them peace of mind should they or their family fall ill. Quality care without standard waiting times can make a significant difference at what is likely to be a very difficult time.
To find out more about the health and dental insurance options that are open to you, please get in touch. We can arrange for a specialist health and dental insurance professional to visit you at home for a no-obligation discussion.
