Supporting your ambitions
Many of John’s clients are business owners and/or own assets abroad.
John recently helped a UK based family, with international business interests, move on a significant proportion of the family wealth for the benefit of the next and future generations. This was undertaken in a tax efficient and protective manner to help ensure the funds remain within the bloodline for many years to come. During this project John worked collaboratively with "best friend" firms in Australia, the United States and New Zealand.
