Matthew Worthington BA (Hons) DipPFS

Senior Wealth Management Consultant

MY APPROACH

I specialise in working with business owners and High Net Worth individuals and have also worked with a number of sports professionals over the years

Having spent over 20 years as an adviser and as a consultant for a number of the UK’s largest insurance and investment companies, I have a good understanding of the issues which concern clients.

Most clients are too busy to allocate time to really focus on their financial plans.
 In addition, most clients have a number of financial products in place with significant amounts of capital invested, but are unsure as to what sort of financial future the investments may provide.
 There is rarely an underlying and on-going ‘Financial Plan’ to achieve their medium to long term objectives.
 Many clients have a great deal of existing market risk in their portfolios, so what can be done to reduce this risk?

My aim is to provide a highly professional service, working with my clients over the long term to provide a financial plan specifically tailored to their personal goals, taking into account their existing portfolio and overall appetite for risk.

The value of an investment with St. James’s Place will be directly linked to the performance of the funds you select and the value can therefore go down as well as up.  You may get back less than you invested.

HOW I HELP

A plan to achieve your goals

The level of client satisfaction may be judged by the fact that most new clients are introduced to me as a result of personal recommendation by existing clients.

As well as my own experience and knowledge, I can also call on any number of specialists either within the Partnership or from a carefully selected number of industry experts or providers.

I frequently work alongside clients own solicitors and accountants and in this way, an appropriate solution can be found for any given situation.

 Please contact me by phone or email to arrange a meeting or to request more information, and I’ll be pleased to discuss how I can help in more detail.

I specialise in offering advice in:

Pension and investment planning

Inheritance Tax planning and mitigation

Personal & Business protection

I very much look forward to explaining how I can help you individually and welcome you to get in touch.

TOGETHER WE’LL PROSPER

Powering your future

It isn’t the amount of wealth that matters most, it’s what you do with it that counts.

With our help, your wealth becomes the fuel that powers your future – a means of enjoying the life you want and looking after those you love. Whatever your goals and wherever you are in life, we build a financial plan that’s fit for the weeks, months and years ahead.

Effective planning to create the future you want.

What will your future be like? It can be easy to think of the future as being unknowable, but planning ahead can smooth out many of the uncertainties and help your goals and aspirations become reality. When we work with you, we always encourage you to consider the future you want – and then we help make it happen.

Planning helps you…

  • Identify goals and aspirations
  • Make important decisions today
  • Look after those you love
  • Look forward to the future with confidence

A sound investment in your future.

Investing for the future is fundamental to most people’s financial plans, but understanding how, why and what to invest in requires specialist expertise. We understand that your ideal investment strategy depends on many factors, but by getting to know your reasons for investing and your attitude to risk, we can give you the comprehensive advice you need.

The value of an investment with St. James’s Place will be directly linked to the performance of the funds you select and the value can therefore go down as well as up. You may get back less than you invested.

Our investment planning helps you…

  • Understand your investment options
  • Spread your investments across the most appropriate assets
  • Make the right choices for you and your family
  • Build a balanced, diversified investment solution

Preparing for a richer retirement.

Most people like to look ahead to an enjoyable retirement. For many, it represents the stage of life that will give them time and space to pursue their personal passions. But it takes planning to achieve the retirement you want, and not everyone has the foresight to make the right choices today.

Retirement planning helps you…

  • Prepare for the future you want
  • Optimise your financial arrangements today
  • Plan for life’s ups and downs
  • Look forward to retirement with confidence

Protection for you and your loved ones.

We can’t see into the future, but we can help you plan for events that might happen and that could have a major impact on you, your family and your wealth. By understanding your situation in detail, we can help protect you from life’s many storms, both minor and major.

Protection planning helps you…

  • Prepare for life’s uncertain events
  • Protect your wealth from excessive tax liabilities
  • Shield your income from the impact of illness
  • Protect your loved ones if anything happens to you

Although you may have firm ideas about who will benefit from your wealth in the event of your death, making sure your intentions are carried out smoothly can be complex.

All kinds of events can end up knocking your plans off course, and it takes expert advice to make sure your wealth is protected for future generations.

Our team guides you through the process of planning the legacy you will one day leave behind. We consider the effects of inheritance tax and the possibility of unexpected events, making sure your wealth is retained and protected for those you love.

The levels and bases of taxation and reliefs from taxation can change at any time. The value of any tax relief depends on individual circumstances.

Legacy Planning helps you…

  • Make sure your wealth is passed on in the way you want
  • Minimise inheritance tax and capital gains tax
  • Create a legacy that passes to multiple generations
  • Protect your estate and assets

A firm financial footing for your business.

Running a business is hard work and it’s important to ensure your hard work is creating financial security. You and your employees all rely on your business, and taking steps to secure its financial future is all part of being successful at what you do.

Financial planning for your business helps you…

  • Secure your business’s financial future
  • Look after your finances and those of your employees
  • Build a stronger, healthier business
  • Feel confident that your business is well prepared for success
