Areas of Expertise

Retirement Planning - We are all generally living longer and want to have enough money to enjoy our retirement. Given the complexities around pensions and recent legislation changes, it is important that retirement planning features in everyone’s financial planning. Whether it is planning for retirement, looking at options at retirement or reviewing your income in retirement, Abby can help.

Investment Planning - Abby takes pride in helping her clients invest in a way that they feel comfortable with and is in line with their attitude to risk. She can assist with flexible and tax-efficient investments making her clients’ capital work as hard as possible.

Inheritance Tax and Estate Planning - Abby can help with mitigating inheritance tax through the use of annual exemptions, regular gifting, and the use of highly specialised products.

Protection Planning - Life has a habit of throwing the unexpected at us. Abby works with her clients and advises how they and their families can be financially protected should the worst happen. She can provide solutions so that if a family suffers a loss, serious illness, or long-term illness there is financial support to help ease some of the pressure during what can be an extremely stressful time.

Abby is passionate about helping her clients achieve their financial goals and does this by taking time to get to know her clients. She offers a highly professional service with an excellent level of client care.

The value of an investment with St. James's Place will be directly linked to the performance of the funds you select and the value can therefore go down as well as up. You may get back less than you invested.

The levels and bases of taxation, and reliefs from taxation, can change at any time. The value of any tax relief depends on individual circumstances.
