Newsletter : April 2017

April 2017 Newsletter

When you finally arrive at your correct destination, be it home or somewhere else that you feel totally at ease, it’s a good feeling.  You’re in the right place and happy to be there. You wonder why you undertook the journey in the first place.

That describes how I feel at the end of this first year of our new incarnation.

The 6 years since selling Oliff Associates brought me back to a place where I am content, once
again, running my firm in a way that fulfils my desire to provide better financial services.

Service that sets out to exceed expectations

I intend to provide quarterly new letters, bringing items to your notice that may be relevant or,
at least, informative.

(LISA), and ‘Help to Save’, which became available for young adults from April carry generous bonuses, are part of the government’s commitment to supporting savers at all income levels and at all stages of their lives.

Most banks have declined to offer these at the moment but they are readily available and we can advise on these.
