Asset protection after a windfall: Tax planning to protect generational wealth
The Daily Telegraph – ‘Money Makeover’
Canaccord Genuity Wealth Management’s Head of Financial Planning, David Goodfellow, featured in The Telegraph’s ‘Money Makeover’, giving wealth planning advice to a reader who wants to make the most of his assets and ensure that his family reap the benefits of his profitable career in the long term.
Derek Jarman, 60, has a significant pension pot, a number of investments and – most significantly – is anticipating the upcoming sale of a large plot of land, worth approximately £1.6m. As he plans to take retirement in the near future, how can he go about protecting his assets as an inheritance for his grandchildren, while also ensuring he has enough to enjoy the retirement he has earned after a long career?
In his response, David outlines how Derek could invest in a balanced portfolio to maintain capital growth to sustain his lifestyle, while also suggesting a general ‘tidy-up’ of their finances, including amalgamating their shares into an ISA and paying off a residual minor debt. In terms of protecting his inheritance, he outlines how Derek could begin transferring wealth to his children and grandchildren through ISAs, as well as looking into inheritance tax planning in order to attract business relief.
