Our Services

The financial advisers in the Clifton network have expertise across the financial planning spectrum to be able to meet the needs of our business and individual customers.

Investment advice

Deciding where to invest your savings can be a daunting process. Generally speaking you’re agreeing to the higher level of risk associated with investing, with the aim of achieving greater potential returns over the long term verses traditional cash deposit savings – as tax efficiently as possible. Investment options include…  

  • Individual savings accounts & junior individual savings accounts
  • General investment accounts
  • Onshore & offshore investment bonds
  • Venture capital trusts & enterprise investment schemes
  • Cash deposit management

Whether you’re looking solely for capital preservation, income or growth we will review your needs to identify the best investment solution for you.

Retirement advice

It’s never too early to start planning for retirement. The sooner you start thinking about how you will generate the income you need to fund the lifestyle you want when you are no longer working, the more likely you will be to achieve your retirement goals. There are a number of saving options that can help provide financial stability in retirement including pensions, ISAs and investments

The Clifton ‘Plan for Life’ approach will take you through a discovery journey to identify future plans and aspirations. Coupled with cashflow modelling we will illustrate the effect of various options including the potential impact of life events, investment and protection decisions.

Income protection

Income protection is designed to provide you with an income if you’re unable to work for a prolonged period due to illness or injury. These plans will cover a specified number of years (usually until retirement) and, in the event of a qualifying claim, the proceeds are paid until you are able to return to work or reach the end of the term, whichever occurs first.

Private Medical insurance

Private medical insurance allows you to pay for private medical care if you would rather not wait for treatment from the NHS. Some policies allow you to choose when, where and by which specialist you are treated.

Life assurance

Life assurance can be used to help pay off the mortgage and support the family in the event that either the key earner or homemaker passes away. Depending on the type of policy, it can pay out a lump sum or provide a regular income. Our process will identify what you want life insurance cover for since that will help determine the best policy for you.

Critical Illness

Critical Illness plans provide a lump sum in the event of you being diagnosed with one of a large number of specified illnesses. They can be structured on a term or whole of life basis and, given that we are more likely to suffer a serious illness than to die before we retire, it is perhaps the most valuable element of all protection plans.

Mortgage advice

Whether you are investing in property or are looking to get on the property ladder, our advisers have the expertise to provide independent mortgage advice for all kinds of buyers.

We can help with;

  • Buy to let mortgages
  • Portfolio landlord mortgages
  • Intergenerational mortgages
  • Acquiring mortgages for businesses and commercial premises
  • Remortgaging advice

Estate planning

Protecting what is yours can help to mitigate Inheritance Tax, but no one method can, or should, be considered a ‘complete solution’ as each individual will have different circumstances and requirements. Life assurance plans, ‘gifting’ and/or employing the use of trusts are often considered key strategies in protecting your assets.
