Investments

KNS Financial Planning advises on a wide range of stockmarket investments that include shares, unit trusts and other collective schemes that can diversify risk across market sectors and geographically. Rising income and growth are the aims but not guaranteed.

Mortgages

Our advisers can help find competitive fixed, variable and capped rate and tracker mortgages, also buy-to- let and commercial property finance. Help to Buy and other Government schemes aid mortgage accessibility for first-time buyers and others.

Protection

Serious illness or untimely death could leave your family with even more worries if your mortgage or other financial commitments are not covered by critical illness, income protection or life insurance. Think also about private health cover.

Pensions

Changes to pension rules, auto-enrolment and the State Pension make it vital to plan retirement carefully, from as early in your working life as possible. Our pension specialists can advise at all stages of your working life and in the later years.

Tax Planning

Individual Savings Accounts and various annual allowances exist to be used and are perfectly proper and legal arrangements. Extra ISA types have been added by the Chancellor and may complement the tax-efficiency of pension plans.

Venture Capital Trusts and Enterprise Investment Schemes

Investors enjoy legal tax advantages in VCTs and EISs, which facilitate the funding of smaller companies to help them grow. Although the risk may be diversified, such investments are higher-risk.

Inheritance tax planning

If you wish to hand wealth down to new generations, certain allowances enable this and may reduce any eventual IHT on your estate; a phased main-residence band starts in 2017. Life cover held in trust may help to pay an IHT bill.

Long-term care

Care home fees have been rising rapidly and a proposed government cap on anyone’s lifetime care costs has been postponed for several years at least. There are products that help you to maintain choice and prevent all your money going in fees.
