  • Trust

Making other investments

We can advise on the categories of investments that are right for you and work with your existing financial adviser or recommend our sister company A4G Wealth to help with the specifics.

Retirement planning

We’ll provide you with a long-term plan for your whole life, that will cost you less than one week’s pay. You’ll come away from the session feeling:

  • Less financial fear, when we discover and target any shortfalls you may have in your current monthly savings
  • Equipped to move forward with the real figure you need to save per month in order to secure the retirement income you desire
  • Adjust your levels of savings based on fluctuating interest and inflation rates
  • Motivated (and sometimes relieved!) when we calculate how much longer you need to work for before retiring based on your current savings level
  • At peace that you’re heading on the right road to retirement

Whatever stage you are at in your life this service is critical for protecting your family, mortgage, loans and safeguarding your business in the future should your circumstances change.

Preserving and protecting your legacy

You’ve spent your whole life building a secure financial future your financial, now you need to have a solid financial and estate plan. Our sister company, A4G Legacy, can help you with advice, guidance and support – when you need it most:

Preparing Wills

If you die without a valid Will, your estate will be distributed according to the law, which means your wishes won’t be carried out. A4G Legacy can gather the names of your family and friends you’d like to benefit, provide advice on the type and design of the Will and put the document together for you.

Lasting Power of Attorney

In the event of losing mental capacity, the Court of Protection would have the power to control your property and finances. A lasting power of attorney (LPA) enables you to choose who would make decisions in your best interest. By asking relevant questions, A4G Legacy can prepare this document to ensure that people chosen by you can carry out your wishes.

Probate

Following your death, if the assets you leave behind are more than a certain value, your chosen executor may have to apply to the court in order to carry out your wishes. A4G Legacy can act as your legal representative to settle any liabilities that you may have and then distribute your assets to your chosen beneficiaries.
