Would Your Exit Plan Survive the UnexpectedAlong with his colleague Graeme Sutton, he completed a comprehensive review on how to protect small to medium sized businesses unexpected succession events. Sadly, certain situations can force a business owner or part owner to have to exit their business e.g. business partner suffers a serious illness/ disablement/death.

My Approach

My approach is to meet with you to discuss your individual needs and tailor a comprehensive risk plan for your family and / or business.

“Every client and business has different needs – requiring specific strategies and planning.

My experience in helping clients protect their assets and manage financial risk allows me to provide you with top-quality advice and to design practical and realistic solutions.

For many years I have provided advice to clients and worked with their solicitor and accountant to implement a risk plan which ensures my clients’ total needs are considered.

My aim is simple: to create long-term financial security for my clients and ensure their assets are protected no matter what happens”
