Financial Planning

Financial Planning

We know that everyone has a differing set of priorities, and we want to ensure that what you need and want to achieve is something we completely understand before moving forward. Our approach is a highly personalised service, where we will work closely with you to reach your financial planning objectives, and then move forward from there.

Our early discussions often go so far as to cover family members amongst other circumstances, and we enjoy having long-term relationships that often span generations. As part of our services to private clients, we offer financial planning guidance to ensure you protect what you have, and achieve what you need. Financial security is becoming more and more important in today’s world, and keeping you and your family safe and building upon your current circumstances is what we’re great at doing, and would love to work with you for.

We provide a holistic review of all aspects of your protection, pension and investment needs, or a more focused service according to your priorities and objectives.

Pension Planning

When it comes to planning for retirement, most people haven’t given enough consideration to what is involved. This is a dangerous pitfall, and can leave you short of what you need when the time comes to put down the pen or hang up the boots. We’ll provide an analysis of your existing pension provision and asset allocation, and offer recommendations on a strategy for the future.

Pension legislation is complex and constantly changing, and we are specialists in this area. Whether you are saving for retirement, exploring your options at retirement, or considering how to cascade your surplus pension funds to future generations, we can guide you through the pensions maze.

Inheritance Tax and Estate Planning

Our Inheritance Tax and Estate Planning can give you an insightful analysis of the current Inheritance Tax liability on your estate with solutions on how to mitigate this using the allowances available. This can include insurance, gifting and trust planning to find solutions that balance your needs with your objectives for Inheritance Tax mitigation.

Our personal injury and Court of Protection specialist, Nick Lowy, has extensive experience in dealing in this specialist area and understands the unique and personal nature of each individual’s situation. Combining this knowledge with the investment management expertise and professional resources of Cumberland Place ensures we deliver the highest level of personal service and achieve the optimum balance of income, growth and capital preservation.
