Notable client work and achievements

  • Being able to demonstrate to a client that he was able structure his pensions in a way that enabled him to retire today rather than continue working for another 5 years up to state pension age.
  • Advise that a couple with a significant Inheritance Tax liability were able to gift a considerable lump sum for their grandchildren without impacting their lifestyle now or their ability to fund long term care should that scenario arise in the future.
  • Utilising a lump sum from the sale of a house to construct an investment portfolio that created a tax efficient income stream for a client ensuring that all available tax allowances were utilised.
  • Being able to advise an individual, who before seeing me, was set on transferring his pension, that in actual fact he would be best leaving it where it is based upon precious guarantees applicable that will enhance his income.
