Schroders Personal Wealth has launched its “Wealth is Personal” campaign
Schroders Personal Wealth has launched its “Wealth is Personal” campaign to challenge people’s perception of financial planning with the aim of helping to bring this to more people in the UK. The need for financial advice has never been greater. Not only are people living for longer and looking to get more out of their retirement, changes such as pension freedoms means people increasingly have to take more responsibility for their own financial future. This means more people than ever need help as they plan for their futures.
Always seek a professional opinion as tax rules can be complex, depend on individual circumstances and are subject to change.
