Partner Practice of St. James’s Place Wealth Management

Making the right choices when it comes to paying for care can significantly reduce costs and help to protect your estate. Exploring your options with a specialist who is both professionally qualified and highly experienced will ensure you get the right advice at the right time.
Choosing the right care setting for ourselves or a relative is not something which many of us have much experience of. There will be plenty of things for you to think about and this may feel a little overwhelming.  You may have had little or no information to help you make the right decisions. Whether it’s for you or a loved one, arranging for the best quality of care in the right setting will be your priority.
Our experience will help support you in your decision making and help you manage all your financial affairs in a way that will make the best use of your assets.
We also give advice on Inheritance Tax and Investment Planning, including generating income in the current economy.
St. James’s Place guarantees the suitability of the advice given by members of the St. James’s Place Partnership when recommending any of the wealth management products and services available from companies in the group. This gives you reassurance and peace of mind when planning your financial future.

The Partner Practice represents only St. James’s Place Wealth Management plc (which is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority) for the purpose of advising solely on the Group’s wealth management products and services, more details of which are set out on the Group’s 
website at www.sjp.co.uk/products. The `St. James’s Place Partnership’ and the titles `Partner’ and `Partner Practice’ are marketing terms used to describe St. James’s Place representatives.
Owen Kenny Solicitors

Whether you need assistance for a deceased loved one or for yourself the information discussed , be it in relation to Wills, Probate or Powers of Attorney, is often emotive and personal. Our dedicated Private Client team at Owen Kenny Solicitors can provide you with the support and legal advice you need. We are empathetic in our approach and always work towards developing a practical and straightforward solution for you at a stressful time in your life. Our services include:

*Lasting Powers of Attorney: We nearly all know someone who, as a result of physical and mental illness finds managing their affairs difficult.
*Making a Will: Everyone should have a will yet few people do. The BBC news once reported that two thirds of people in the UK do not have Wills and in 2012 the Treasury made £38.5m from people who died without a Will.
*Probate: When a loved one dies it is easy to feel overwhelmed with the amount of work that is required.
