Patterson-Mills Financial Planning U.K

We are pleased to inform you that our comprehensive service can continue, no matter your location or stage of life. All of our Clients can benefit from UK regulated, independent financial planning with the same high levels of service.

With Patterson-Mills Financial Planning UK, we are able to offer distinctive end-to-end solutions that will provide you with a hassle-free, smooth transition for your relocation.

We believe that you are more likely to succeed in life when you have a plan, and the same applies to managing your money.

It is important to be aware that that any financial adviser firms situated outside the UK would usually be unable to accommodate your financial management needs once you become a UK resident. This is the case regardless of whether the investments you have abroad are to remain in place, or you plan to transfer things to UK-based options.

The rare exception would be if an international adviser firm has UK regulatory licensing already in place.

Important Financial Protection

Extreme care should be taken if your existing overseas adviser suggests that you can continue to be advised by them once you are back in the UK. You will not benefit from financial protection as you would be if you were to receive advice from a UK-based and regulated adviser firm. These important protections include the:

  1. Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS)
  2. Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS)
  3. Professional Indemnity Insurance (PII)*

Regrettably, we have come across overseas adviser firms that are unaware of the above rules and regulations, and who continue to try to advise returning UK resident clients. Newly returned UK resident clients may be advised, even if inadvertently, to contravene some UK tax rules and regulations, potentially incurring the wrath of HMRC in so doing!

*Cover that the adviser firm must have to adequately protect its UK clients in the event of a financial loss being deemed due to advice given.

Specialist Advice Solutions

Fortunately, whether or not you are a current client of Patterson Mills, we can offer you the right advisory solution if you are relocating to the UK.

This is because of our UK based firm, Patterson Mills Limited, along with our EU partners. This connection, combined with our additional knowledge of the UK-centric offshore centres (e.g. Isle of Man, Guernsey, Jersey) means that:

  • Your overseas investments can be updated to take advantage of UK offshore taxation rules for international investment products
  • Your investments within the relevant products you may have can be updated in-line with your risk profile and ongoing evolving objectives
  • Our distinctive investment management approach can help you decide how best to run your overseas investments with full tax transparency as needed
