Our process

We have a structured framework, with a blend of strategic knowhow and forward planning

This allows us to determine your optimal financial strategy.

Understanding your financial situation

To provide the most appropriate wealth management solution for you, we need to understand your financial requirements. To assist in this process, we will ask you a series of questions which will include obtaining an understanding of:

  • Your current financial situation
  • Your financial assets, liabilities (eg type and nature of pension held, investment structures, other assets) and potential inheritances
  • An understanding of your financial goals, aims and objectives
  • Your preferences for wealth creation/wealth preservation or inter-generational planning (or possibly a combination of these)? Do you have an income or capital growth focus?
  • An understanding of your tolerance to investment risk;
  • Where relevant, an understanding of your residency status and associated taxation elements.

Where you have another financial professional or accountant working for you either locally or abroad, we will be pleased to look over any associated financial documentation to ensure that any strategy we develop for you is properly aligned on a local/global basis as applicable.

Research and Analysis

Once we have obtained the background to your circumstances and have considered this, we formulate the most appropriate wealth strategy for you.

In reviewing the market of available investment options, we initially focussing on the areas in which you have the greatest financial need.

  • Not being tied to any product provider or fund manager, our research extends to the full range of available product options – with your own best financial interests in mind.
  • We integrate proven economic theory in our analysis and allow for diversification on a geographical and asset class basis.
  • Through sophisticated market-leading research tools a high level of analysis is undertaken which often extends to cover thousands of available investment options, which are then worked through to determine what we believe is the best possible strategy to put in place.
  • Often our analysis includes financial modelling, cashflow and sensitivity analysis in a local or (where required) international/cross-border basis.
  • We also have access to international investment and multi-currency options which we can offer to you. This significantly widens the scope of products which may be best suited to meet your financial requirements.

Strategic Thinking and Value-Added Knowhow

Following our initial analysis, we consider any additional ways to add value to your overall wealth strategy. This requires strategic thought (local or international as the case may be). With a team having a combined 150+ years of financial services experience, this step provides our clients with substantial value-added benefits compared to simply selecting a wealth management portfolio alone.

As examples:

  • Is a restructuring of your financial assets more appropriate?
  • Is there a way to achieve a lower cost or more tax effective solution?
  • How do I forward plan to help avoid future inheritance tax issues?
  • Which is the best country for my assets to be held?
  • Will a multi-currency investment option be more appropriate for me?

Presenting our Recommendations

  • Our advice is presented via a written suitability report. In each case this will include a recommendation for the most appropriate course of action considering your financial aims.
  • In each case, we will discuss our recommendations in detail with you, to ensure that your financial objectives have been properly captured and you have had the chance to ask any questions and properly understand the next steps.
  • Once the strategy has been agreed, we will then work to implement the strategy on your behalf.

Ongoing Advice

As any wealth management strategy takes time to implement and personal circumstances, taxes and legislation change over time, it is important that a system is put in place to check- in on a regular basis to ensure that your wealth management strategy remains on track.

Such is covered off by our ongoing advisory service.

In this service, we review your position on an agreed ongoing basis to ensure that your financial strategy remains on track and where adjustments are required, these can be made, on a regular basis, re-setting the path for the continued achievement of your developing financial goals.

The value of investments, and the income or capital entitlement which may derive from them, if any, may go down as well as up and is not guaranteed; therefore investors may not get back the amount originally invested.
