What people say about us

“My wife and I recently moved to France. We knew we needed to look carefully at our finances as our tax residency had changed … To be able to talk to someone who understands both French and UK investment requirements has made it possible for us to be completely confident that our savings and investments will be looked after properly.”

On deciding to move permanently to France and retire at effectively the same time, my wife and I knew that organising our finances effectively was going to be extremely important to securing our future.
We were fortunate to be introduced to Jennie Poate at Beacon GWM. We found Jennie to be very personable and her expertise in investment planning for those in our situation allied to her calm, measured advice has made our decision to work with her very easy. We rest assured that our lifetime savings are in very safe hands leaving us to focus on enjoying our well earned rest
