The D.A. Calder Approach to Financial Planning

We strongly believe that a realistic and achievable financial plan is key to ensuring that your financial future will be secured. And it’s never too early, or too late, to start planning. Our personalised approach to financial planning can help you plan your future, step by step, in realistic timeframes thus making sure you are always in control. Together, we can create your personal financial planning “Roadmap”.

Recent changes to pension legislation means that you have much more freedom and flexibility when accessing your pension benefits.

There are a wide range of investment options available to you, from stocks and bonds to mutual investment funds, depending on what financial goals you want to achieve, your timeframe for achieving these goals and your accepted level of risk.

Inheritance Tax

Inheritance tax can cost families considerable financial loss in the event of the death of a loved one. We can advise you on legal ways to protect you and your family’s wealth, avoiding any unnecessary upset at an already difficult time.


Long Term Care

People often have to make sudden and unexpected decisions regarding their own, or a loved one’s long term care needs. A pre-established long term care plan can help ease the financial burden and stress if that time comes.
