Resolute Financial Planning offers you financial planning with clarity and integrity.

At Resolute Financial Planning we listen to our clients and provide pro-active advice so they can achieve their long term objectives.

Resolute Financial Planning will initially offer a financial review encompassing a clients existing situation; together with an exploration of their current and future objectives. This includes researching the market for the most appropriate solutions, which accurately meets their requirements, completing the necessary documentation and following through to a successful completion of the recommendations given.

During the initial meeting we will ask you about your goals and objectives. It is important that we fully understand your current financial position and your attitude to investment risk. We will also consider your tax position and take details of any existing investments and policies which you may have.

Crucial to the success of any wealth planning strategy is ensuring that both parties have a clear picture of where you are today and what your future plans are.

After our initial meeting we would write to outline our understanding of your position along with a brief description of my intentions.

Once we have agreed what action needs to be taken, we will then research and recommend the specific financial solutions and investments required to fulfil your objectives.

Resolute Financial Planning will provide you with a detailed report outlining the recommended financial solutions and reasons why they are suitable for your requirements.

Having met with you to discuss the report and agree the recommended solutions, the final stage of the process is to implement the recommendations, thereby, establishing the recommended wealth planning and investment strategy for you.

Creation and Preservation of Wealth

What wealth really offers you is the ultimate in choice; the choice of how and where to spend your time because, after all, it is your most precious commodity. There's a whole world out there to explore and a whole lifetime of experiences to be shared with family and friends; and part of our role is to maximise these choices and outcomes for you.

As you move through life's stages your need for the accumulation and preservation of wealth and the need to produce income will change.

When your financial objective is wealth creation you may be busy building a business or working on a successful career in your chosen occupation. You may have a substantial amount of income that needs to be invested for capital growth and it is vital to have a company working with you that you can trust to build your wealth through professional management.

In time you will have built sufficient capital to become financially independent. It does not necessarily mean retirement but places you in a position of many more choices. The emphasis from an investment prospective is likely to change to wealth management, with the probable objective of preserving your capital and generating higher levels of income whilst mitigating the tax you pay.

Careful estate planning could help ensure that the wealth you worked so hard to accumulate will be preserved and distributed to your heirs according to your wishes. We can provide you with a custom analysis that illustrates a broad range of estate planning vehicles and high-net-worth financial planning strategies.

There is more to wealth than merely accumulating money; it is the enabler for you to reward yourself for hard work and we help you use these rewards to generate more choices for you in the future.

Resolute Financial Planning's aim is to will help you build, protect, use and pass your wealth on. We want all of our clients to keep together what they have worked so hard to put together.

Giving you Financial Clarity

People today are simply ‘thought flooded’ and cannot process all the financial and investment information that bombards them everyday. Resolute Financial Planning will help you by cutting through the noise and give you clarity when it comes to your financial planning.

Help You Plan Your Future

"To invest successfully over a lifetime needs a sound intellectual framework for making decisions and the ability to keep emotions from corroding that framework" - Warren Buffet.

Sometimes you need to seek out the advice of a professional. For your health... for legal issues... and when it comes to your financial well-being. It just makes good sense.

A professional financial advisor can help sort through all of the options available to you and put together a plan that will help you achieve your short-term, and long-term, financial goals. And as your life evolves and your priorities change, Resolute Financial Planning will continue to work with you, re-evaluating and adjusting your plan along the way.

Tax Planning - Not Planning is Like Planning to Fail

Paying as little tax as possible by planning a coherent overall strategy should form a central part of your financial planning.

The three main areas of tax are Income Tax, Capital Gains Tax and Inheritance Tax and they all interact with each other. If you do nothing then the Government will ensure that your hard earned wealth will end up in their coffers. With this in mind, Resolute Financial Planning will help you take full advantage of tax saving opportunities open to you.

Estate Planning

"There are only two certainties in life: death and taxes" - Benjamin Franklin

Along with a will, you should also consider estate planning as a way of protecting your assets during your lifetime, while ensuring that they are distributed according to your wishes after your death.

Due to the complex nature of tax and estate laws, it is strongly recommended that you obtain professional legal and tax advice when doing your estate planning. And remember to update your estate plan whenever you have a major life change such as a marriage, divorce, birth or death in the family.

Inheritance Tax Planning could save your family hundreds of thousands of pounds in tax. The number of people who pay this form of tax is growing rapidly so will your total asset value provide the Inland Revenue with a tax windfall?

This is one tax that can be avoidable with careful planning. There are many options are available which may appear complex but with Resolute Financial Planning's help this is often not the case.

The Financial Conduct Authority does not regulate some products such as Will services

Retirement Solutions - Creating a Retirement Strategy

Wouldn’t it be great to look forward to your retirement rather than worry about how you are going to manage financially when you are no longer working? The key to this security is having a well-planned retirement strategy, reviewing it annually, at a minimum, and sticking to it.

The first step in retirement planning is to determine how much income you will need on a monthly or annual basis to maintain the lifestyle you desire in retirement. Once you determine how much money you need, you will have to find sources for that money.

It is vital to plan to try and ensure that you will be able to maintain the standard of living that you are used now. If you believe that 'State Pensions' will keep you in the lap of luxury when you retire then you are very likely to be terribly disappointed.

Resolute Financial Planning can help you create a successful and realistic retirement strategy.

Protecting Your Family

If something were to happen to you...a critical illness...or worse, would your family have the financial protection they need for their future?

One of the best ways to ensure your family’s needs are met if an unfortunate event should occur is to have adequate insurance protection.

Protection is all above providing financial security for you and your family.

Resolute Financial Planning will guide you to ensure you have the right type of insurance and the right amount of insurance.

"Andrew has advised me, and other family members, on numerous investment and pension issues for many years. His advice is always well researched, carefully considered and clear. His attention to administration and matters of detail is excellent. Andrew has great personal and professional integrity and on the basis of our dealings over the years, I have absolute trust in him."

Michael P. Retired Financial Director of Vodaphone

"Andrew has successfully advised our family for many years on both investment and pension matters. What was very impressive about Andrew's initial approach was that he did not push various products or vehicles at us like many advisors, but rather listened carefully to our requirements and our risk appetite before returning with a bespoke solution for our investment needs. Andrew is always meticulously prepared, very pro-active and takes time to ensure we fully understand the commitments we make. He has become a close friend and we trust him explicitly."

As a family we have complete faith in Andrew and his ability to provide sound investment advice in these turbulent economic times."

Doug C. Oil and Gas Industry Consultant

"Andrew has been financial adviser to my wife and I since 2002 and has been invaluable in helping us make key financial decisions in the light of changing circumstances.

We are happy to regard him as a friend as well as an adviser."

Brian L. Retired Director of an International Paint Company
