The Guernsey office specialises in International Retirement Plans and Qualifying Non-UK Pension Schemes (QNUPS) and has exclusive use of an International Financial Adviser Support (IFAS) programme - a unique technical support programme providing a one-stop shop for information on international pensions.
Pension plans are established so that the underlying investments may not be subject to tax; with careful planning the pension fund can therefore be used by the member during their lifetime and any unused assets within the scheme at the time of death can then be passed on to the member's estate or to named beneficiaries.
