Pension Advice

Sooner or later we all have to think about how we’ll manage when we retire. In the Western World and other developed countries, demographics show a growing ageing population that will bring even more pressure on the State to meet social costs. This in turn will put upward pressure on tax in these countries.

Tax Planning

Using tax-law provisions to your full advantage, maximizing all of the tax breaks available to you, accelerating/increasing all available tax credits and tax deductions.

Education Fee Planning

Education is a key subject and one that’s often the source of heavy debate. Where do we want our children to be educated? Where are the best schools and teachers? What type of education do we want to be able to provide and, importantly, how much will it cost?

As parents, we want the best education for our children and we want to be able to afford it. Yet, when we take a look at the costs, it can be a bit of a shock.


Why Protect Your Life? The death of a spouse who is the main income generator is not just a physical death, it is also potentially the death of an income. The effect of the loss of that income on the remaining members of the family during the ‘dependency period’ can be quite dramatic.
