WHAT WE OFFER
Our advisers have significant experience in a range of areas, and are able to provide bespoke specialist advice on everything from mortgages to pensions.
While there are many places to turn to for financial advice, an Independent Financial Adviser (IFA) is able to offer you unbiased advice on financial products across the entire market.
When it comes to more complicated financial matters such as investments or pensions, a financial adviser who knows the ins and outs can point you in the right direction.
SAVINGS & INVESTMENTS
There are many different types of savings and investments, each with different structures and tax implications. We can discuss your aims and objectives and recommend the most suitable ways to achieve your goals.
Taxation can be very complicated. The rules, reliefs and allowances often change, meaning it is important to stay on top of the current laws to ensure you're managing your finances in a tax-efficient way.
PENSIONS & RETIREMENT
As pension specialists, we can provide advice on areas of pensions which other advisers simply aren't qualified to advise in. We can help you decide how much you should be putting in your pension as well as ensuring that your pension contributions are tax efficient.
Unfortunately, estate planning is not just for the retired or the wealthy. We can help arrage your estate appropriately so that it is distributed in line with your wishes.
Equity release describes a range of products that allow you to release the cash tied up in your home without moving. Niche IFA are regulated by the FCA to advise and sell equity release products.
Hopefully you will never need to make a claim against your insurance. However, if the time comes, you want to be absolutely sure that the insurance you have is right for you. Here at Niche IFA, we can help decide what type and level of insurance is suitable based on your current situation.

It is a sad statistic that 1 in 3 women and 1 in 5 men over the age of 65 will need some form of specialist residential care during their lifetime.
Providing long term care can be a serious financial burden on those requiring care and sometimes on their families and relatives too.
The Community Care Act was introduced in 1993 meaning that local authorities became responsible for funding long term care. Therefore today, the long term care system is now needs and means tested.
In England and Wales, those with assets in excess of £23,250 (2014/2015) have to pay their own care costs, which can be very expensive and can deplete long term savings or mean that a family home may have to be sold.
