Savings & Investments

At Torbay Financial Services, we construct investment plans to meet our clients’ objectives and agreed appetite for risk. We use all asset classes, from equity and bonds to managed futures, and can even access hedge funds where suitable. Managing the expected returns of the mix of investments is key to our investment planning strategies.

The value of investments and the income they produce can fall as well as rise, you may get back less than you invested.

Our investment planning strategies include:

  • ISAs
  • Unit Trusts
  • Investment Bonds
  • Collective Investment Trusts

EIS’s and VCT’s invest in assets that are high risk and can be difficult to sell. The value of the investment and the income from it can fall as well as rise and investors may not get back what they originally invested, even taking into account the tax benefits.

Fact Finding & Goal Planning
  • Analyse Assets and Liabilities
  • Establish Target Income / Capital and date(s) required Sum
  • Establish any Specific Requirements – Ethical / Social
  • Scenario Planning – Risk/Investment Inputs
Attitude to Risk & AssetAllocation
  • Complete bespoke H&C Risk Questionnaire
  • Discussion on the volatility of different investment assets
  • Design a suitable mix of assets to generate expected/desired return
Tax Wrapper/Product & FundResearch and Monitoring
  • Pension / ISA / OEIC / UT / Bond / EIS / VCT / Structured Product
  • Investment Fund Selection
  • Initial External Research Team – ‘fund filtering’
  • Extensive Internal Fund research using risk weighted measures of return
Review Process
  • We facilitate three different levels of ongoing service
  • We monitor the investment recommendations
  • Complete review of all our recommended funds on a regular basis
  • We actively make ad hoc changes as and when required
  • Rebalance assets to fit allocation model to maintain expected return
  • Regular face to face reviews

WHY INVEST?

Cash deposits are useful for holding emergency monies for exploding boilers or short periods of unemployment, but inflation erodes the value of cash over the medium and long term meaning cash is not actually as safe as many people believe. Moreover cash savings accounts currently provide poor value for money.

With inflation hovering at around 3%, many people nowadays are reassessing their actual need for instant access cash, and allocating more capital to purchase ‘real assets’ that have a fighting chance of keeping up! This means decisions need to be made about how and where to invest, but investing in the current environment presents a number of challenges.

The choice of retail investment options is mind blowing with new ways and routes to invest seemingly springing up every day.

Online stock brokerage services provide an easy way to purchase everything from shares in FTSE100 companies to derivatives and CFDs to buying an index through ETorbay Financial Services. The thrill of watching the daily price swings is attractive to some and a small portfolio of handpicked shares can, in the right circumstances, produce stellar returns.

Other investors prefer the relative safety of open ended collective investment funds such as Unit Trusts and Open Ended Investment Companies (OEICs) that also provide access to real assets but have professional fund management making the daily buy/sell decisions. From low cost passive funds to high octane UCITSIII absolute return funds, there are literally thousands of retail collectives to choose from, most with daily liquidity.

EIS’s and VCT’s invest in assets that are high risk and can be difficult to sell such as shares in unlisted companies. The value of the investment and the income from it can fall as well as rise and investors may not get back what they originally invested, even taking into account the tax benefits.

Please contact us to arrange an Investment Review. An Initial Investment Review is FREE and without obligation.

Put a spring in your step – make the most of tax relief

Saving into a pension is one of the most tax-efficient ways you can save. But it’s something many of us don’t know much about.

Standard Life carried out research last year and 40% of people said "they weren’t aware of it,” says David Downie, pension tax expert at Standard Life.

It means that every £100 contribution into your pension pot costs you just £80 if you’re a basic-rate taxpayer paying 20% tax.

For a free informal chat and more information about this please give Paul our adviser a call.

TAKING A QUARTER OF YOUR PENSION SAVINGS TAX FREE

A lot of people know that they can access some of their pension money without paying tax but perhaps aren’t sure how it works.

When you access your pension savings, you can normally take a quarter – 25% – tax free. If you have a modern, flexible pension plan, when you take this is up to you. You can take it all at once. But you don’t have to.

You can take it in slices over a number of years if the pension plan you have lets you. This is known as phasing, and could be a smart move as it tends to be more tax efficient overall.

And, of course, just because you can, doesn’t mean you should take all – or any of it. The longer your money stays untouched inside your pension plan, the more potential it has to grow in a tax-efficient way and the higher your tax-free amount could be. Of course, that’s not guaranteed and because money in your pension is invested, its value can go down as well as up and could be worth less than what’s been paid in.

For advice on how, and if, it's suitable to access your pension savings please give us a call.
