Traditionally, wealth has passed from one generation to the next upon death. However, intergenerational wealth management challenges that notion and looks at how families can use their wealth more collaboratively to support each other during their lifetimes. Increasing life expectancy and major social change mean many families need to reconsider how their wealth can work harder for the benefit of the whole family.
Watch our brief video to discover our approach to maximising our clients finances and protecting their wealth for future generations.
The value of an investment with St. James’s Place will be directly linked to the performance of the funds you select and the value can therefore go down as well as up. You may get back less than you invested
The levels and bases of taxation and reliefs from taxation can change at any time. The value of any tax relief depends on individual circumstances.
Thanks to better medical care and healthier lifestyles, we have the prospect of living longer. But while an increase in life expectancy may seem like good news on the face of it, it has to be recognised that there are a number of financial implications that go with it.
For example, the average cost in a residential care home in the UK is around £31,200 a year and with the average stay at about three years, the costs are substantial*.
The St. James’s Place Later Life Planning Scheme enables you to plan for IHT by providing monetary gifts to your loved ones and securing an income to help cover your long-term care costs.
We are committed to helping people meet their financial needs throughout their lifetime and long-term care planning is no exception. The St. James’s Place Later Life Planning Scheme gives peace of mind enabling you to plan your IHT exposure, make gifts to your heirs during your lifetime and secure a pre-set income should you need long term care in the future.

The value of an investment may fall as well as rise. You may get back less than the amount invested. If the “income” taken exceeds the growth on the Plan, the capital will be eroded.
Helping loved ones onto the property ladder.
The difficulties facing younger people in joining the ranks of homeownership are well-reported, with renting often now stretching well into one’s thirties or beyond. Consequently, an increasing number of parents and grandparents are stepping in to help children onto the housing ladder.
There are a number of ways to do this; gifting, loans and providing security to mortgage providers are all worth consideration, and many of these solutions have the dual-advantage of helping with effective estate planning. However, caution – and advice – needs to be taken when considering which option to take to ensure that no unexpected tax liabilities result from this act of generosity.
