As a business owner, you achieved your success by taking a very “hands on” approach to running your business.

When it comes to your personal and business finances you can’t do it alone, you need to talk to a financial adviser.
Company Directors, Executives & Professionals
Successful companies build healthy, profitable balance sheets, so the directors and partners need to decide what they want to do with the accumulated assets.
- Use the capital to invest further in the business?
- Use some of the capital to enhance the directors’ pensions?
- What are the tax implications in the short and long-term?
We can help answer these questions and advise on a range of benefits available to those who wish to maximise their pension contributions and tax reliefs. We also provide a comprehensive, bespoke financial planning service to senior executives and professionals focusing on your needs and lifestyle goals.

A successful business depends on the close co-operation and experience of the directors. The death of one of the directors can have a serious impact on both the surviving directors and the family of the deceased.
Co-directors Insurance gives the directors of a company the peace of mind that there will be money available to them on the death of a director to buy back his/her shareholding from his/her family, thereby maintaining control of the company.
The death or critical illness of one of the partners can have serious financial consequences for the remaining partners.
Partnership Insurance will protect the financial security of the firm by making sure that funds are available to compensate the deceased partners estate for his/her share of the partnership.
