What is Wealth Management?
Wealth Management covers a range of issues some of which are not immediately obvious from its basic description.
Protecting existing wealth is often the first priority and this can be achieved by ensuring monies are invested as tax efficiently as possible and in a manner which avoids any inappropriate level of downside risk.
Following on from protecting existing wealth is the desired accumulation of additional wealth by further tax efficient savings and investment growth – this strategy needs careful consideration and planning with a clear understanding of personal goals, financial circumstances and investment timescales.
There comes a point in most people’s lives where wealth accumulation reaches a peak and there is a move towards de-cumulation and starting to enjoy the fruits of our labours. Here again there is a need to maximise the tax efficiency of any income withdrawals and to ensure the right choices are made regarding income extraction.
The final piece of the jigsaw is Inheritance Tax planning and the need to debate how best to pass on wealth to the next generation and beyond – the issues of ongoing financial control versus avoidance of IHT can be complex and need careful consideration.
