Will writing &
estate planning

At Sanctuary, we’re not only here to help you manage your personal finances most effectively – we are also on hand to make sure your good planning and hard work is passed on to your family and loved ones, too.

Though most people are aware of how important it is to write a will, the majority of people in the UK have still not carried out this simple but effective task.

In reality, if you neglect proper estate planning, you won’t be guaranteed that your assets and finances are passed on as you wish – and you could also be leaving huge inheritance tax implications for those you have left behind.

If you’d like to create or update your will – or set up trusts for your loved ones – our independent estate planners can guide you through the process and help you create the most tax-efficient structure that meets the unique financial needs of both you and your loved ones.

Specialist advice

At Sanctuary, our advisers bring with them a wealth of experience from specialist areas to help tailor financial solutions to suit your unique circumstances, goals and aspirations. Some of these areas are unique and specialist:

Pension Transfer Transfer Specialists

Here at Sanctuary Financial all advisers have the required qualifications and experience to advise on transfers from Defined Benefit (final salary) pension schemes as per the FCA’s requirements.

Your pension scheme will have the following requirements under Section 48 of the Pension Schemes Act 2015:

This requires that trustees or scheme managers check that advice has been taken before allowing a transfer to proceed, where the proposed transfer involves a DB pension or other safeguarded benefits worth more than £30,000. The advice must be provided by a firm with the FCA permission to advise on pension transfers. FCA rules apply to advice provided by FCA authorised firms and, in particular, we expect the firm to consider the assets in which their client’s funds will be invested as well as the specific receiving scheme.

We have a robust process designed to provide clients with advice that is individual to them within the parameters of the FCA rules on “Advising on pension transfers” and the requirements highlighted above.
