Maureen’s Story


After the death of Maureen’s husband, we provided reassurance and peace of mind that she had enough capital for her own needs for the rest of her life. Her husband had managed the household budget, so the first step was setting everything out in a clear fashion. It was important that Maureen understood what she had and what she would need in the future to maintain and protect her lifestyle. We established exactly what income she needed and discussed the financial situations that might arise in the years to come, including the possibility of any care that Maureen might need.

Once Maureen was reassured that everything would be OK financially, she felt more comfortable looking at the wealth transfer strategies that would help reduce inheritance tax on her estate.

Managing Family Wealth

We reviewed the existing estate planning and ensured both her wishes and those of her late husband could be met from the capital, protecting and preserving it for her lifetime and also future generations. We made sure that the capital was invested tax-­efficiently to enhance returns and to provide a suitable net spendable income. With a careful eye on Maureen’s family, we also invested for growth over the longer term, with a view to enhancing the estate for future generations.

While Maureen’s retirement will not be the same after the death of her husband, she has the peace of mind that comes with no financial worries and the knowledge that her children will benefit from their estate on her death. Maureen is able to enjoy her retirement to the fullest, enjoying trips away with grandchildren to Lapland, Euro Disney and other exotic destinations.
