George enjoys helping clients identify what is truly important to them and creating bespoke solutions to support them in achieving their goals. She feels this understanding is fundamental to having long lasting relationships with her clients.
She has considerable experience of advising private individuals and, in particular, business owners from pre/post sale of the business to general tax planning considerations including Inheritance Tax issues.
She looks after portfolios for private clients, helping them implement and maintain tax efficient investment strategies. Helping clients understand the complicated pension rules in an ever changing landscape.
Georges’ specialism is in succession planning - after fully understanding a family’s dynamics and aspirations, she establishes a sound succession strategy to move money through the generations, while taking into consideration degrees of control required as well as income or capital requirements. This helps to ensure that when the inevitable happens, there is as little financial impact to the family as possible.
