A refreshingly clear approach to your financial planning

Meet Polly

 Polly is the Arcaria stress-buster.

She was hatched indoors from an egg collected from our garden pond last August (2014) and we find her very relaxing to watch -  she is a good listener too!

If your day becomes a bit hectic you might like to 'tune in' and watch her for a while too. It really works.

By the way, Rusty (Company Cat) likes to sit between the camera and Polly and watch her. She doesn't mind and he doesn't bear her any ill-will but, if he is there, you might only see a close up of ginger fur! We do clear him out when we spot him but he is a cat ... sneaky!

(Technical point: This is a live html5 stream, some browser/flash combinations might take a few seconds to load properly)

Polly will be offline until at least the New Year - we are having a lot of building work done and she has been moved to a place of safety (on a table in an alcove by our front door). Unfortunately there is no realistic way of getting the camera on her in this new, temporary, location. We will get her back online as soon as we can.

Pension Death Benefits

Clients hoping to leave a flexible legacy to family members from their pension need to check that they have everything in place to make that happen. Trying (your executors) to achieve this after your death may be impossible if you were stuck in a pension scheme which doesn't offer the new freedoms, or with an outdated death benefit nomination.
