Barristers

Our advisers offer independent specialist financial advice to barristers at all stages of their careers, from those who are just starting out to those who are well-established. We know that because of the highly technical nature of your work and the hours you put in, you may not have time to devote to ensuring that your financial affairs are properly organised and managed.

With our background in providing specialist advice to the legal profession over many years, we understand the specific challenges that barristers face throughout their careers and in retirement.

Comprehensive advice for the challenges you face

We provide the necessary framework that will help you make informed and objective decisions about your wealth, creating the building blocks of your future financial freedom and providing financial security for you and those depending on you.

Experience tells us that the kind of challenges that many in your position face can include:

  • variable timing of income and cash flow;
  • complex tax legislation relating to aged debt;
  • substantial business costs;
  • funding the purchase of a share in chambers;
  • the change in earning patterns if you become a QC; and
  • the need to put in place protection against illness or death.

Your Lifetime Wealth Model

We begin by asking you searching questions about your financial situation, your goals, aspirations and needs. Where our skills lie, is in helping you develop a coherent and flexible long-term strategy, a lifetime financial plan. Our service includes important features such as a Tax Optimisation Strategy that ensures we address with you the payment of future tax bills alongside longer-term tax planning measures. The Lifetime Wealth Model will also be first building block in your retirement planning strategy.

We can review your mortgage requirements, and explain how an offset mortgage could meet your specific needs. We’ll also consider you and your family’s need for protection policies that would provide if you were unable to work or were to die.

True Investment Independence

What clients particularly value about the service we have to offer is our True Investment Independence from any group or bank. This means that we are not under pressure to promote or sell the products offered by any one provider. We never adopt a ‘one size fits all’ approach, but instead work with clients to assess their individual needs, their appetite for risk and the length of time they wish to be invested.

We’re then free to make the most appropriate recommendations for them based on our in-depth market knowledge and research. We create tailored portfolios, selecting blends of best of breed managers, utilising the unique insights we gain from our partners, leading research group Asset Risk Consultants (ARC).

By being truly independent, your adviser is able to create a bespoke portfolio tailored to your risk appetite, utilising investment groups who excel in your particular risk area. We know that some manager’s style suits those clients looking for potential high return with high risk, while other managers deliver in more cautious consistent styles.
