Protect and Grow

Trusted wealth management solutions at home and abroad – wherever you are we can help you manage, protect and grow your wealth.

Wealth Management

Stability

At Blacktower we specialise in the protection, preservation and growth of your wealth.

Stability and comfort comes from understanding your history, dynamics and aims.

It is always our goal with each client to build a strong relationship that allows us to feel the compelling need driving your investment objectives; enabling you to get on with your life peacefully, knowing that your wealth is working for you.

Our professional wealth management solutions are a strategic, ongoing process customised to your unique needs and goals in constantly changing market conditions.

Regular Savings

Save monthly

There are many reasons why our clients choose to save money on a monthly basis, whether it is to supplement their retirement provision, save for future education fees or they may just simply want to invest into the markets with an affordable monthly amount.

For example, in most major currencies, simply saving surplus income in a bank account will produce a return that is less than or barely above current inflation rates. It therefore makes sense for our clients to look for better ways to make use of their accumulating capital by utilising a flexible, monthly savings vehicle that will offer greater potential for growth.

We offer a range of simple, flexible and cost effective saving schemes from international product providers and because we are an independent Financial Advisory firm, we are able to identify and recommend the most cost effective and appropriate solution for each clients circumstances, objectives, budget and risk profile.

Ultimately, Blacktower are here to ensure that for whatever purpose, your future financial goals or targets are reached.

Tax Planning

Tax Obligations

If you live outside the UK, or plan to do so in the near future, Blacktower’s professional and knowledgeable local guidance can prove invaluable in helping you understand your tax obligations, both in the UK and in your expat place of residence.

Making sense of tax requirements can be difficult at the best of times, so, when you add cross-jurisdictional and foreign language complications, it’s not hard to see why some expats worry about taxation issues, particularly when they have assets located in more than one country.

If you want to meet all your taxation responsibilities, be certain you are paying tax in the right place, and take steps to protect your wealth and income, we can help, with our tax planning service. In fact, living abroad is rich in opportunities to develop tax-efficient structures that will work to your benefit.

And it’s worth noting that being poorly prepared or oblivious of your obligations is not considered a legitimate reason for not paying tax or declaring assets. If you fail in your responsibilities, it can result in severe financial penalty or even prosecution.
