Financial planning has witnessed significant change, so it is not surprising that most people are unclear about what financial planners actually do. The aim of this guide is to explain the process in both general terms and specifically what financial planning can achieve for you.
What happens to a business if its owner or co-owner dies or falls seriously ill? Much will depend on the type of business, but unless there has been some advance planning the chances are that there will be disruption, arguments and the strong possibility that all or part of the business will end up in the wrong hands.
Estate planning often becomes, and all too often remains, a do-it-tomorrow task. Then it could suddenly become all important… or it might be too late. After all, accidents do happen.
Life and health insurance protection underpins most good financial planning. These types of insurance can ensure that if the worst should happen, the right amount of money will reach the right hands, at the right time.
This guide looks at the rapidly changing world of retirement provision and pensions, both state and private. It covers areas such as the changing State Pension Age, the impact of the lifetime and annual allowances, auto-enrolment and the selection and management of investments for pension arrangements.
If you want to reduce the amount of tax that you pay, then the solution is in your own hands. Thinking and planning ahead could help you to lessen the rising tax burden – and we’re here to help.
In this guide, the focus is on private pension provision, which for many people will be their primary source of retirement income. The scope for drawing pension benefits has changed significantly in the past few years, giving greater flexibility and a correspondingly increased need for advice.
Risk is at the heart of many investment decisions and, as the diagram above shows, it is typically at the starting point of the investment planning process. There could be several types of risk in any investment. Helping you to understand the risks is a key responsibility of your investment adviser.
ISAs are a key component of any savings and investment plan. With the addition of new forms of individual savings accounts (ISAs) such as the new Lifetime ISA, we round up the full ISA family and outline their requirements including eligibility, account structures and tax treatment.
