MID-TERM 'ADDITIONAL' FUNDS REVIEW

This service is for existing Gold and Platinum Money MOT Service clients only that want an additional 'mid-term' review before their next main quarterly or yearly review is due.

Economies, politics and markets can change significantly in days.  We only have to look at Brexit or in 2020, the coronavirus to understand how the World and markets change very quickly.  This affect market exposure for our investments in a matter of days and weeks with extreme volatility.

What Should I Do?  If you wish to switch or have a mid-term review of funds invested in:

  • For Gold and Platinum clients who do not want mid-term advice, we will action your specific switch instructions at no charge - simply email us with your specific instructions and we will action them.
  • For Platinum clients it may make sense to wait until your next quarterly review and we will discuss and then recommend/action any fund switches.  This may not be feasible for a Gold client if you have a few months before your next yearly review is due.
  • For Gold and Platinum clients who do not want to wait until the next review and still want mid-term advice on which funds to switch to/from, there is a charge per policy (in a similar way to Gold and Platinum service fees).

CHECK YOUR LAST REVIEW REPORT:  To see what funds we recommended to you so that you know what you are in or what you decided to postpone investing in.

Still want Mid-term advice?

  • Platinum clients: no charge if we bring forward your next quarterly review - contact us
  • Platinum clients: who want a mid-term review in addition to all four quarterly reviews  - there is a charge, get a quote below.
  • Gold clients: who want a mid-term review in addition to the yearly review  - there is a charge, get a quote below.
  • Silver and Bronze clients: do not use this service - you will need a full initial review.

What is included?

  • Records - We maintain a full and complete financial services file
  • Review Investment Funds - We monitor changes in investment markets and notify you if we believe action is needed
  • Review Law and Tax - We monitor changes in law and taxation and notify you if we believe action is needed
