Wealth Management, Financial Services & Tax Advice For Portugal

The Fee Only Financial Adviser


Fee Based Wealth Management & Tax Advice

"We do not sell or recommend commission paying products."

The majority of financial advisers in Europe are remunerated by commissions and commission paying products. This commission is recouped from high charges that you, the investor pays. We charge our clients fees which in turn means that you get low cost investment accounts and lower investment management fees, resulting in better capital returns for you. This applies to all types of investments, including pension transfers to international pensions such as QROPs.

Yes. We offer true independent financial advice. We are not connected to any financial institution, financially or otherwise. In addition, our services are rendered on a fee basis, and thus, we do not rely upon commissions that are paid by investment companies. Therefore, we are not dependent upon these companies, as other financial advisers are.
All other European financial advisers get their remuneration from commissions paid to them by the investment companies. This commission is derived from the charges levied on your invested capital. These charges can be extremely high, often as much as 4% per annum and sometimes more. These high charges will impede your capital return. Furthermore, an investor may also suffer redemption penalties as high as 10% of their capital value if they want to access their capital in the short term.

We prefer to charge fees, so that our clients get the most economical charges with the investment companies, attain optimum investment returns, and at the same time avoiding exit redemption penalties on their capital.
We only recommend financial institutions that operate with segregated client accounts and where client assets are "divorced" from the assets and liabilities of the financial institution. Therefore, in the unlikely event that one of our recommended financial institutions were to enter into insolvency, your capital is protected.

We adopt further caution as to where these financial institutions are based. For example, we do not recommend any financial institution operating from countries such as Portugal, Spain, Luxembourg or Liechtenstein, as insolvency laws in these countries dictate that client assets form part of the insolvency procedures. We therefore avoid institutions in these countries as we do not want our clients to become part of the mass bankruptcy proceedings of any financial group.

For the British expatriate, financial planning will involve financial aspects in both the UK and Portugal. Therefore, a firm regulated to provide financial and taxation advice and management advice in these two countries can be the optimal situation for UK expatriates. We are one of few advisory firms that possess such regulation and one of very few firms that are regulated in the country that we operate in.
We recommend many. With all, we conduct and continue to conduct our due diligence on each to ensure that these financial institutions are financially viable. Some of the financial institutions that we recommend have been in business a long time, one such UK company being established in 1742 - 276 years ago.
