ADvisory Services


Keep your money working for you and feel confident about your standard of living in retirement.


Understand the options for passing on your assets and take full control over your legacy.


Put your finances on a firm footing as you establish new roots in the UK.


Planning for your retirement is more complex than ever before, with the changes in statutory retirement age, new freedoms to cash in pensions and tax legislation among the myriad of decisions to negotiate. But it really all boils down to three things: your ideal retirement vision, the money you will need to achieve it and the investments you need to be making now.

We will help you evaluate these fundamental choices, as well as explaining how the regulations affect your decisions, and put a plan in place to help you rest assured that your retirement is properly planned for and you can look forward to it without apprehension or uncertainty.


A will gives you control over what happens to your estate after you die. Without one, your legacy may not end up with the people you want it to. As a rule, it’s advisable to review your will every five years, as circumstances change or new additions come into the family.

We can help you with the evaluation of your estate and the drafting of your will and will also advise you on the dispersal of your assets to ensure that taxes and other expenses are kept to a minimum. Sound estate planning can make a big difference to your beneficiaries.


The decision to move countries is daunting. There are many issue to consider – not all of them financial. Having made the move himself Graeme and his team are well placed to advise on any legacy policies and investments you may have. Is your Will valid in the UK? Does your medical aid and life / disability insurance cover you? What are your options with respect to retirement annuities and / or preservation and pension funds? 

We have the experience and expertise to ensure you understand all the options and possible solutions for you and your family.
