Tax and Trusts

We believe that it is only right and proper that the majority of the benefit should be credited to the underlying investor given that the risk involved sits firmly upon their shoulders.

Modern pensions have many incorporated benefits which you may or may not be aware of. If you have any doubts regarding the suitability of your current provision, or indeed if you are yet to formulate a plan, we would urge you to seek advice.
