What is wealth management?
Wealth management is a service built around your needs, with advice tailored to your current situation and future hopes. You can choose ongoing financial advice or opt to receive a one-off service to review your current financial approach in this volatile and challenging economic environment.
How can wealth management help you:
Boost your wealth
Make sure your money is working as hard as you are. Investing your savings could be a way to generate income in the long term. Research shows that getting the right advice could increase your wealth by £47,000 over a decade1.
Schroders Personal Wealth can look at the best ways for you to do this at a level of risk you’re comfortable with. Your investments will be managed by an expert fund manager. They’ll balance your money in a diverse portfolio, including products such as ISAs, General Investment Accounts, bonds and SIPPs.
The value of investments and any income generated from them can go down as well as up and are not guaranteed. You may not get back the amount originally invested.
Planning for retirement
It’s never too early to start thinking about retirement. 44% of retired people rely on the state pension as their main source of income2 . Smart planning can help you enjoy this stage of your life.
Your wealth adviser will help you create a pension plan to suit your needs, so you can reach your retirement goals. Even if things in your life change, Schroders Personal Wealth can adapt your plan to make sure it stays on track.
Inheritance tax help
Forward planning can help make sure it’s your loved ones who benefit most in your will. Your estate could be subject to 40% inheritance tax, over the £325,000 threshold.
Schroders Personal Wealth could help find ways to reduce the amount of inheritance tax they might pay and pass on more of your assets to loved ones or beneficiaries.
Tax treatment depends on individual circumstances and may be subject to change in the future.
Protecting yourself and your family
Making sure you have the right protection for you and your loved ones can give you peace of mind, should the unexpected happen. Less than 1% of UK households have income protection in place3.
Schroders Personal Wealth can offer advice on policies that could protect you and your family, including income protection, life assurance and critical illness cover.
