Unforeseen events happen. Some may seem inevitable. Financial protection policies are at their most valuable when protecting homes, incomes and families from these circumstances, we can help advise and guide on all areas of protection from; Mortgage cover, to Family Income Benefit, to Business Share protection, to Inheritance Tax protection planning.
- Kin Hubbard
Just as much as our property and assets need protection, so do we as individuals. For those of us who have family and others reliant upon us, we need protection against loss of income, temporary or even permanent. Income protection is a safety net, a harbour from a storm, or just simply building up an emergency pot of money in case of short term issues.
Through ongoing monitoring, we will review investment and saving strategies as your needs change, and we will also review your protection policies to ensure they are always suitable and cost-efficient for you, your family and business needs.
In the early years of life your focus is usually on mortgage protection or loans to support you in raising a young family, moving on that journey takes us to protecting you with a growing family, and maybe your own business and then on to more mature needs of sheltering assets and your wealth from problems such as inheritance tax, to the planning for possible nursing home fees. In all of this you need choices, control and the flexibility throughout it all, and the support and advice of a Whole of Market adviser.
We have over 17 years' experience in helping individuals, families and small businesses set peace-of-mind protection plans in place.
- James Madison (4th US president)
Building up a business into a profitable, bottom-line focused enterprise is hard work, involves long hours and is vulnerable to many problems, surprising events and sometimes distracting legislation. Damage limitation plans start with thoughtful financial planning.
In a small business, you are often responsible for all departments with the buck stopping with you for everything. It is very easy to forget or even ignore the basics of efficient life assurance or pension planning. If you do not do it, no one else will do it for you. Along with your accountant we can help put the right plans in front of you, so that you can implement the right choices for you, your family and business.
There are a number of very good strategies to consider: Death in Service, key man assurance, shareholder protection, cross options agreements to protect the instance of a death of one of the main shareholder/directors. We are knowledgeable about these, and can guide you towards the best option. As we say, better to have the choice, the control and the flexibility to make the right, informed decision than to pick up the pieces afterwards.
However you choose to invest in your children, private schooling or higher education, and regardless of your financial situation, there are good reasons why you should plan for this cost.
