We Are Family

Make sure your life policiies offer the right level of cover to suit your family circumstances. It may also be worth thinking about inheritance tax planning (IHT).

If you don’t already hold your savings and investments on a platform, speak to your financial adviser for details on how a platform works. Essentially, a platform is an online service that keeps all your financial information together in a virtual filing cabinet.

If you would like to add any of these hits to your playlist, speak to Financial Services Manager Craig Campbell on 01383 628800 or ccampbell@thomsoncooper.com.
