Benefits of our IHT Portfolio Service

Our specialist IHT planning solution provides your clients with a portfolio of AIM-listed shares that can qualify for business relief.

Your clients’ portfolios will be managed by a dedicated team with specialist expertise and a strong track record.

Your client’s portfolio will be constructed with between 20 and 25 AIM shares, which are diversified across a range of industry sectors to spread risk.

Although our portfolios are highly correlated, each client's portfolio is bespoke, meaning we can help manage their capital gains if required.

We can use your clients’ ISAs allowances so that any growth is free from capital gains tax and income tax on dividends.

We use a specialist firm to independently review the qualifying status for business relief on all investments.

A cost-effective solution with annual fees of 1.25% +VAT and a minimum investment of £100,000.

Who is our IHT Portfolio Service for?

We’ve designed this specialist investment service for you to use when advising your clients about estate planning. These portfolios come with a range of benefits:

Reduces IHT liabilities

Appropriate for families with taxable estates valued significantly in excess of the IHT nil rate band. Hundreds of people have used our service to successfully claim business relief through HMRC.

Maintain access and control

For your clients who want to maintain access to their capital, unlike many alternative inheritance tax solutions; providing them flexibility for potential future expenses such as care home fees.

Provides a fast IHT solution

An ideal solution for those who have not put in place long-term plans for their estate. The investments can become exempt from IHT after just two years compared with seven years for a trust or gift, based on current tax relief and legislation.

Offers attractive growth potential

AIM is home to many innovative and growing companies that have become leaders within their fields. Investors should be willing and able to accept the risks that come with investing in this market.

Inheritance Tax (IHT) Portfolio service should be regarded as higher risk.
