Helping you through life’s financial landscape

Most of us can divide our lives into three main financial stages, namely: Preparation, Accumulation and Decumulation. These take us through each generation, bringing with it specific financial challenges along the way. Our experience shows that people feel reassured in a continuity on this journey and prefer the stability of receiving trusted advice, over the years, from the same family of companies.

Helping clients accumulate, protect and distribute their wealth in the right way, at the right time

We recognise that the creation of wealth takes enterprise, vision and usually a mixture of hard work and good fortune. For these reasons, most of us want to strive to protect that wealth and ensure that it not only serves ourselves during our lifetime, but then passes on to future generations in an appropriate and tax-efficient manner.

There is a considerable difference between the wealth of older and younger generations today, and the gap is increasing. Young people are struggling to pay university fees and high rents before they even consider getting onto the property ladder. It is not surprising, then, that ‘The Bank of Mum and Dad’ has now become the UK’s sixth largest lender*. At the same time, the older generation are living longer, highlighting the importance of not only adequate pension and retirement provision, but also the possible need for funding professional care in later years.

Our core principle is that we believe all advice that you receive from the Generational Planning Group should be of the highest quality, impartial and independent of any bias to specific organisations or financial institutions. In working with us, we will ensure that your own financial security is not compromised by over-stretching your position to support other generations. You can relax in the knowledge that your financial affairs are in experienced and professional hands.
