How can wealth management help you?

Without a solid plan of action to achieve them, financial goals remain wishes. Our expert private wealth managers backed by a team of specialists will help you achieve financial certainty through a structured wealth management plan that is tailored to meet your current needs, while securing the future you aspire to.

With the right private wealth manager along for the journey, you’ll be better prepared to tackle life’s challenges, provide for your family and achieve your goals. As your financial life partner, we make a commitment to walk alongside you through the good times and the bad.

We do this by:

  • Cutting the complexity from wealth management through ongoing advice and collaboration to equip you to make informed investment decisions.
  • Making discretionary investment allocation calls where necessary, so you can spend more time on what’s really important.

Retirement Planning

Retirement provision is one of the most critical aspects of every individual's investment portfolio. With less than 6% of South Africans able to retire in comfort, planning for retirement is the most important thing you can do for your future today.

Planning for retirement means more than just setting aside a portion of your monthly income for the future. It means deciding what that future will look like. If you have a spouse, it’s a good idea to include them in this process as you’ll be deciding how you want to live when your working life is behind you. We offer an advice-driven, comprehensive retirement planning process analysis to ensure you never have to worry about becoming a statistic.

Risk Cover Planning

Every individual should consider risk cover. This provides protection and liquidity in the event of death, disability or illness to ensure that your family’s financial needs are catered for. Risk cover needs to be tailored according to your individual lifestyle, taking into account factors like profession, income and dependants. We perform a full financial needs analysis to determine the necessary insurance levels.

We’re able to guide clients through the significant complexities of the insurance industry, helping to navigate price and benefit differences across multiple products and providers, ensuring appropriately structured cover for very specific individual needs.

We reassess client needs and product options every few years to ensure that cover and premium are still aligned.

  • Life Assurance
  • Disability
  • Terminal Illness (Dread Disease)
  • Income Protection

For individuals with business interest (such as equity) in private companies, we provide advice around:

  • Buy and Sell Agreement
  • Key Person Insurance
  • Contingent Liability Insurance

Fiduciary Services

At the core of our fiduciary service is an understanding of your need to provide for your family’s future through a meaningful legacy.

Working closely with your private wealth manager, we plan how best to manage and preserve your wealth for generations to come.

Estate Planning

Planning for the future also includes planning for when you’re no longer around. An estate plan is a prudent measure that ensures that your surviving spouse and minor children are taken care of, when you’re no longer around to do it.

Estate Planning is focused on preserving and protecting your assets for the benefit of subsequent generations and to ensure that there is sufficient liquidity in the estate to cover estate duty, taxes, bequests, debts and administration costs.

Drafting your Will

More than legal documents, Wills for you and your family are a necessary part of your estate plan. A Will clarifies how you wish to hand down your estate and assets, establishes who will administer your estate, who will look after your minor children, how their inheritance will be controlled, and how your family must carry out your wishes.

With a clear view of your overall financial affairs, we can assist you in drafting your Will, taking into account both local and foreign assets, and their respective jurisdictions.

Administration of Estates

As executor, our job is to effectively step into the shoes of the deceased, winding up financial affairs and distributing assets in accordance with the directions contained in the Will.

We perform our entrusted tasks efficiently, tax effectively and timeously, in terms of the Administration of Estates Act, to ensure that inheritances are not unduly delayed for beneficiaries.

We can help with all aspects of estate planning, drafting of Wills, administration of deceased estates and testamentary trusts. In carrying out our duties, we are compassionate, caring, skilful and accommodating toward beneficiaries.
