Your wealth could well be on track in terms of investment growth but if it remains unprotected just wait until it hits the triple tax buffers of inheritance tax, income tax and capital gains tax.
Are you aware that in the tax year ended 31st March 2018, UK families like yours paid £5.2bn in inheritance tax for the first time in history? And this despite the fact that there is a tax-free allowance available. And estimates by Prudential published in the Financial Times estimate that this will rocket by a further £1.2Bn by 2021/22.

We have been helping clients reduce inheritance tax bills since its introduction in 1986.
