As part of this integration, you will have a tailored schedule of meetings to introduce you to the different parts of our client offering, and to identify the key areas where significant value can be added. This may include discussing solutions aimed at protecting and growing your assets with less risk, whilst focusing on maximising tax efficiency and organising your estate in the most effective way via The Route – Future. As a consequence, putting in place a structured financial plan better aligned to delivering your life goals.

Once this plan is in place, your dedicated Relationship Manager will agree a proactive ongoing service plan of structured meetings and ad-hoc reviews, to ensure that:

1) Your financial arrangements stay aligned to your life goals
