  3. Wealth preservation

  4. Agenda: • Introduction- why should wealth advisers engage? • The advised process • Business ideas • Support • Conclusion

  5. What are the challenges that you face?

  6. Adviser business model challenges

  7. Advice process - critical

  8. Why should wealth advisers engage? Every £100 spent on Investment - £4 spent on Protection • RDR - strategy selection • Economic and consumer necessity • Outstanding revenue and profitability driver • £10b investment – only 4% underpinned with appropriate protection • FCA interest in “Risk” & “Capacity for Loss”

  9. Here’s why: Good for you, good for your clients • Enhanced client proposition • Enhanced client security and peace of mind • Enhanced revenue per client • Enhanced cash-flow • Enhanced embedded value of your business • Reduced consumer risks within the business • No longer an “average” wealth adviser

  10. Advised process

  11. Knowing your customer

  12. Identification of demands, needs and possible solutions - PIPSI

  13. Wealth management process Protection / wealth preservation

  14. Risk and loss? Key FSA findings “Although most advisers and investment managers consider a customer’s attitude to risk […] many fail to take appropriate account of their capacity for loss.” “By ‘capacity for loss’ [the FSA is] refer[ring] to the customer’s ability to absorb falls in the value of their investment. If any loss of capital would have a material detriment on their standard of living, this should be taken into account when assessing the risk that they are able to take.” FSA Finalised Guidance: Assessing Suitability – March 2011

  15. Understanding loss and the consequences Key risks for firms to consider In the FSA’s view, poor outcomes can occur if firms fail to assess a customer’s capability for loss. The FSA states that although most firms consider a customer’s risk preferences or appetite for loss, they often do not consider their capacity for loss… An example of good practice cited by the FSA was a firm that used “one process to assess the customer’s attitude to risk and a separate process to assess their capacity for loss…” FSA Finalised Guidance: Assessing Suitability – March 2011

  16. What if something happens to a client with no protection?

  17. What if something happens to a client’s assets with a financial underpin?

  18. Wealth preservation - risk Translating attitude to risk to protection Wealth management – investing for future goals Wealth preservation – protecting your goals and lifestyle against the unexpected

  19. More new business ideas

  20. Opportunities – Business to Business • Increase revenue now - commission • Protect and increase future revenue - protect funds under management • More income from existing clients - replace trail income • Increase productivity per adviser • Diversify - alternative income stream

  21. Business solutions for business risks • Client retention - generational planning • Compliance - identify shortfalls, risk • Avoid litigation - cost, reputation, PI • Differentiate - additional client services, Vitality • Increase business value - complaints, relationships

  22. Opportunities Continued Three to focus on • Wealth preservation planning • Inheritance Tax planning • At/or post retirement planning • Vitality

  23. A hierarchy of personal tax needs • Income tax/NIC • Capital gains tax • Inheritance tax • But…..

  24. Key factors in driving interest in estate planning Age Wealth Family Self -sufficiency Rates/exemptions

  25. Key target segments Older, wealthier families and property owners

  26. What does the challenge look like? IHT fundamentals: summary • Payable on death (for most) • Lifetime transfers can be taxable though • 7 year “culmination” • Exemptions • Reliefs • The “nil rate band”

  27. IHT planning: the golden rules • The less you own on death the less IHT you pay • So, lifetime planning can be effective – especially if you use the exemptions/reliefs • BUT • Many need to “look after themselves first” • AND • To be effective (generally speaking) you should not benefit from your gift • SO • At least use the nil rate band

  28. The main impediments to (effectively) giving • The (would be) donor’s need for access to what is being given • Gift with reservation (GWR) • Pre-owned asset tax (POAT)

  29. Trusts can help Control: Bare/discretionary Access: Loan trust/DGT

  30. Life policy/trust combination: “a bargain” • Allows you to: • provide for IHT without you needing to change your life • “contract out” of serious giving

  31. Life policy/trust combination: “a bargain” Sum assured Premiums Life policy IHT free Exempt Trust Normal expenditure Annual exemption

  32. Campaign ideas • Providing for IHT without changing your life • (Effectively) paying IHT in instalments • Protecting your pension fund • No probate delays

  33. Providing for IHT without changing your life IHT paid Trust Home Business Investments Payout Death Policy IHT Premiums exempt Full owner access and control

  34. Paying IHT in instalments Trust Policy Future sum assured Premiums Beneficiaries A good investment?
