Deciding where to invest your savings can be a daunting process. Generally speaking you’re agreeing to the higher level of risk associated with investing, with the aim of achieving greater potential returns over the long term verses traditional cash deposit savings – as tax efficiently as possible. Investment options include…
- Individual Savings Accounts & Junior Individual Savings Accounts
- General Investment Accounts
- Onshore & Offshore Investment Bonds
- Venture Capital Trusts & Enterprise Investment Schemes
- Cash Deposit Management

It’s never too early to start planning for retirement. The sooner you start thinking about how you will generate the income you need to fund the lifestyle you want when you are no longer working, the more likely you will be to achieve your retirement aspirations. There are a number of saving options that can help maintain financial stability in retirement including pensions, ISAs and investments.
The Clifton ‘Plan for Life’ approach will take you through a discovery process to identify future plans and aspirations. Coupled with cashflow modelling we will illustrate the effect of various options including the potential impact of life events, investment and protection decisions.Contact us about Retirement advice
Income protection is designed to provide you with an income if you’re unable to work for a prolonged period due to illness or injury. These plans will cover a specified number of years (usually until retirement) and, in the event of a qualifying claim, the proceeds are paid until you are able to return to work or reach the end of the term, whichever occurs first.
Private medical insurance
Private medical insurance, allows you to pay for private medical care if you would rather not wait for treatment from the NHS. Some policies allow you to choose when, where and by which specialist you are treated.
Life assurance can be used to help pay off the mortgage and support the family in case either the key earner or homemaker passes away. Depending on the type of policy, it can pay out a lump sum or provide a regular income. The key is to identify what you want life insurance cover since that will help determine the best life insurance policy for you.
Critical illness plans provide a lump sum in the event of you being diagnosed with one of a large number of specified illnesses. They can be structured on a term or whole of life basis and, given that we are more likely to suffer a serious illness than to die before we retire, it is perhaps the most valuable element of all protection plans.

Protecting your estate can help to mitigate Inheritance Tax, but no one method can, or should, be considered a ‘complete solution’ as each individual will have different circumstances and requirements. Life assurance plans, ‘gifting’ and/or employing the use of trusts are often considered key strategies in protecting your assets.
