G&P Herts - Wealth Planning Advisers

Daniel Aharon

Mortgage Consultant

After studying advanced business, my career began in the residential property market, where I found my niche in some of the most affluent postcodes in North West London. Having worked closely with mortgage brokers in my capacity as a senior property negotiator, my interest in financial services led me to qualify as a CeMap adviser with distinction, when I joined the industry in 2005.

Today, I have specialist knowledge of and experience in the arrangement of all types of secured lending (including bespoke private and asset-based funding both in the UK and overseas). As well as, of course, mortgage protection/self-assurance products (which go hand-in-hand).

I like to think of myself as a natural ‘people’s person’ as well as being a dedicated adviser. To that end, I always try my best to really invest in all my client relationships, going above and beyond to accommodate their needs.

Daniel Coburn

Wealth Planning Adviser

A lot of my clients have already accumulated their wealth and are looking at making it work harder in their retirement with no added risk. They may want to draw a regular income, have access to the capital for ad-hoc items of expenditure like holidays, or just know the money’s there when and if they need it. Many clients, at the same time, would like to know that what they don’t need in their lifetime can be passed onto their children as tax efficiently as possible.

A very reasonable set of objectives, some of which can have fairly complicated solutions. I believe I have the skill of turning the complicated into the straightforward: delivering advice in clear and straightforward terms, leaving clients in full possession of all the pertinent facts to enable them to always choose the best solution.

Keith Galgut

Wealth Planning Adviser

I suppose I have now become what is known as a ‘Later Life’ specialist, financial planning for those at retirement and in what is sometimes referred to as the ‘third age’. My personal experience when my mother became ill in her old age led me, ultimately, to take up this specialisation. It showed me there was a need for financial advisers to combine their core skills with an in-depth knowledge of how Long-Term Care is provided and financed.

It is important to note here that Later Life financial planning encompasses a broad range of advice in addition to the financing of long-term care, including, for example, inheritance tax planning, investment, equity release and retirement solutions tailored for the older ages.

Anthony Posner

Wealth Planning Adviser

What I concentrate on more than anything else is looking at the whole picture. I like to see and help my clients grow, reviewing a whole suite of products I’ve put in place for them over a period of time, running all their protection plans and investments; in fact, managing the whole of their financial planning portfolio. It is really important to me that I see improvements in a client’s financial circumstances which I’ve helped bring about and the progress we’ve made in meeting whatever objectives or goals they may have.

I get great satisfaction from seeing my regular clients frequently over the years, even if it’s not all connected to a long-term plan but just a series of separate transactions that are pieced together over time. When it’s time to review, clients really just want to see you to make sure everything's okay... it’s more about peace of mind and reassurance that you're there and looking after everything on their behalf.

Mark Mann

Wealth Planning Adviser

I consider myself to be a safe pair of hands. Somebody that will ensure that a client’s money goes the distance, by taking a sensible, methodical, measured approach to what I do. I genuinely care about the outcome of my advice and I want my clients to achieve their financial goals.

Not only have I had many of my clients for a long time but there are lots of examples of having looked after the parents’ finances for decades, and now also acting for the children too. I work across the generations, advising clients who have taken over their parents’ businesses, or inherited their assets.

Typically, I’m giving investment advice to clients who want to take an income from their capital, so they can continue to live comfortably and not worry about their finances.

David Satter

Wealth Planning Adviser

I've been an adviser since 1981. As the years go by, you grow with your clients, sharing various stages in their life and helping them with the financial aspects. From buying the first family home and starting new businesses, to planning for when they stop working. You’re also there in unhappier times but sometimes that’s where I see my advice ‘bearing fruit’ and that I’ve done a good job for my client or for their family.

I know how important the financial matters I am dealing with are for my clients and l really care about doing the best job I can. When there are problems (for example, if an insurance company delays paying out a claim or a mortgage company is slow getting an offer out) I don't take no for an answer and don't rest until the issues are resolved.

Darren Smith

Wealth Planning Adviser

I generally see people from all walks of life providing a broad range of advice; from what used to be called the ‘upwardly mobile’ to the financially established at or near retirement. One moment I’m arranging life assurance for family protection, later I’m looking to mitigate a client’s potential inheritance tax liability. In the same way, I’m seeing directors of a start-up business one day and a family owned company that’s been passed down through different generations, the next.

As a young man I started in this industry arranging mortgages for people at a similar stage in life as mine and now I'm helping my clients’ children to get on to the housing ladder. I still like doing this as I believe I'm providing a very valuable service and I also like the variety of dealing with a range of different clients and all the different things they need.

Elaine Snow

Wealth Planning Adviser

I consider myself to hold an important and, in many ways, privileged role. Many of our clients are with us for many years and we play an important part in ensuring their finances are robust enough to work for them throughout their lives. As such, I take great pride in getting to know each and every one of my clients personally, understanding them and their families, and always doing my very best on their behalf.

Financial advisers tend to be needed at the key moments in someone’s life, some of them during joyous events and through times of success, and others around sad events and troubled periods. It's one thing helping clients with their finances from a positive starting point, but a good adviser must also be able to help when situations are less positive too.

David Walton

Wealth Planning Adviser

When I see a client for the first time I say to them “you won’t get an adviser that cares more about you” and I’m confident that the clients I’ve looked after for many years will vouch for the fact that live up to this billing.

I provide the same level of care whether I’m dealing with multi-millionaires, QCs and judges or with self-employed builders, and equally skilled whether it’s analysing a successful business person’s financial requirements, or counselling two siblings coping with parents who both have Alzheimer’s disease and just need support and guidance.

Michael Walton

Wealth Planning Adviser

There’s no substitute for experience and I’m certainly a better equipped adviser today than I was back in 1987 when I started working in financial services. Both my professional and personal life experiences have contributed to the knowledge base and set of skills I’ve developed over this period, which I take into every client meeting.

I like having relaxed conversations with clients, carefully listening and absorbing what they are telling me about their circumstances, gently prompting them to expand on what they’re saying so I get a thorough understanding of their situation and requirements. People need to trust their adviser and meetings like these are a good opportunity for a new client to get to know me too and to start building that confidence in me that’s so important.
