Get a second opinion about your pension planning

Holding assets in different jurisdictions can be beneficial. Properly structured cross-border portfolios are specialist and subject to tax scrutiny.

We have found many expats to have taken out international holdings without a full understanding of their reporting requirements. Without the right advice, cross-border income and holdings can become dangerous.

If you think the advice you’ve received has been poor or limited in its scope, it’s important to get a second opinion. We have dealt with many individuals who have lost money in a growth-market or found unexpected costs deducted in their pension statements Some simply find their consultant difficult to deal with, losing confidence in their abilities.

Our panel of experts offer a second opinion service to all, free of charge

We are passionate about good advice. Get in touch to arrange a free, no obligation chat with a financial expert, to offer you a valuable second opinion over your long-term financial planning.

Over the years, all professional advisers have offered a second opinion service, with horrifying results. We have seen the financial scams, and know what to look for. It’s easy to fall for a well-executed scam, and trust an ‘adviser’ who seems to know it all.

If you have concerns over the advice you’ve received or the investment portfolio you hold, you must have it professionally reviewed. A regulated professional will offer a valuable, impartial second opinion, and may assist you in preparing a complaints case if necessary.

If you’re concerned about your portfolio, get it checked.
