Moore Kingston Smith Financial Advisers: Summer 2020 Bulletin

In our Summer 2020 bulletin, we talk about a number of topics from holding your nerve with your investments during Coronavirus pandemic and planning towards your own century like Captain Tom. The pandemic has provided an awkward reminder for many people of things they prefer to ignore. Other articles include how solicitor firms, and our own legal team at Moore Kingston Smith, have seen a significant increase in enquiries for Will writing doubling in their number in recent months and we discuss how clients should not leave protection to chance with the additional strain being placed on social security benefits due to the impact of Coronavirus.

We also consider whether now is the time for you to review your pension income drawdown plan, will the kids be alright with the first Child Trust Funds (CTFs) maturing in September 2020, are tax rises on the way to pay for the fallout from Coronavirus, National Savings hold off on rate cuts and lastly should you investigate whether to restart child benefit if you qualify for this benefit?  You can access the full bulletin here which I hope you find of interest.

As a multi-disciplinary practice, Moore Kingston Smith are perfectly placed to provide you with the advice you need. Please contact us if you would like to discuss the topics raised in this issue, or indeed any other financial planning or tax issues.
