Solicitors & accountants

For over 30 years, we have worked with hundreds of accounting and law firms throughout the UK and they have referred over 3,000 clients to our wealth management advisers. We understand that referring your clients to us is not a straightforward decision and requires a trust built upon confidence and credibility.

Services for corporate advisers

Our corporate finance wealth management team comprises a national group of specialists who have both training and experience in advising shareholders before, during and after a transaction.

Long-lasting collaboration builds relationships that count

For most new relationships, your firm’s initial point of contact with us will be through a relationship manager. Their role is typically to meet with the head of the corporate team and/or a member of the management team to discuss how we can assist you and your clients. Their goal is to ensure that our firms have a meeting of minds and that we share attributes which can lead to long-lasting relationships.

Our relationship managers also add value through:

  • Agreeing periodic meetings with you to discuss our performance and relationship
  • Arranging ‘lunch and learn’ briefings and wider learning and development initiatives
  • Exploring joint marketing activity, if appropriate
  • Facilitating cross-referrals

Most corporate advisers decide to engage with us through one of our relationship managers. However, if you prefer, you also have the option of working directly with one of our financial planners.

Two key areas of support

Wealth management is made up of two distinct roles which, when combined, can help provide the best long-term outcome for a client:

  • A financial planner – this specialist can talk to the shareholder about their financial planning needs before, during and after the transaction. They really get to know the shareholder at the early stages to help deliver practical solutions that matter
  • An investment manager – nearing the completion of the transaction, the shareholder will be introduced to an investment manager. They reinforce the advantages of astute investment management and build a portfolio of investments which will cater for a client’s income and growth objectives.

The Brewin Dolphin relationship manager will facilitate introductions to our financial planners and investment managers at the appropriate point of a transaction.

High-quality and impartial advice

We appreciate that each client has a distinct set of financial goals and concerns. We take time to understand their individual circumstances, their attitude to risk and long-term investment objectives.

Our experienced investment managers and financial planners use this information to build financial solutions that are precisely tailored to a client’s needs and aspirations. However, our advice is not classified as ‘independent’.

Our investment managers’ primary focus is to manage money on behalf of our clients. Their in-depth knowledge of investments and how they generate investment returns is an essential part of our proposition. They do not give advice on life policies or pensions, although our financial planners do.

We have therefore decided to provide what is known as ‘restricted advice’. However, our combined approach covers all retail investment products and allows us to provide impartial advice to clients – often wider than the scope of most Independent Financial Advisers – due to the resources at our disposal.

Therefore, any referral to us does not compromise an adviser’s independence. Indeed, we believe it could make a meaningful difference to the choice they give their clients.

No investment is suitable in all cases and if you have any doubts as to an investment’s suitability then you should contact us.

Adding value from beginning to end

When advising your clients, we believe we add value by understanding their needs and objectives. Our focus is on providing quality advice – not on selling products – and our goal is to inspire confidence so that your clients can make the right long-term choices.

Our wealth advisers can assist you and your clients through all stages of a corporate deal – from the initial research and investigations right through to advising on investing the proceeds post-sale. Experience suggests that we add most value when we are involved as early as possible in the process.

The initial phase

Shareholders often don’t know how much money they will need for a ‘lifestyle fund’ following the sale of their company. We help clarify thinking by:

  • Sitting down with each shareholder privately to discuss the lifestyle they would like to have
  • Discovering through a personal cash-flow forecast how much capital is needed to achieve this lifestyle
  • Considering what investments, pensions and savings they already have in place
  • Working out any shortfall so that we can understand what each shareholder needs from the sale of the business
  • Helping reconcile the lifestyle fund with the “required” transaction price for the business

Preparation for sale

We understand that ‘loss of control’ is a major concern of shareholders selling their business. We therefore take each client through the process at a pace they are comfortable with. We can help by:

  • Considering any tax structures that may be driving the transaction and factor these into our advice
  • Where necessary, sourcing the right insurance products, shareholder protection or key person insurance and putting them in place
  • Providing the shareholders with pensions advice

Post-completion

Following the completion of a sale, most shareholders have a significant sum of money at their disposal. Whether they have definite plans for reinvestment of not, our adviser can provide valuable assistance at this time.

  • Many clients have no immediate investment plan following a sale and so need a cash management service which optimises returns in a tax-efficient way
  • When offering investment advice, we establish the shareholder’s goals and risk profile before making any recommendations
  • When they are ready to proceed, we invest the shareholder’s cash into a portfolio of securities aligned to their growth and/or income objectives
