Case Study: Ms. W

Ms. W and her husband went through an acrimonious divorce which left her feeling isolated and alone and doubting her ability to cope financially once they had separated. Her husband had single handily managed the family’s finances and she was at a loss to understand how it would all work from here on.

Her solicitor had negotiated a decent settlement for her but she did not grasp the finer points of managing her investments. I was able to explain in simplistic terms exactly what she had in her portfolio and how it could be used to meet her prime objective of providing for her children’s education.

She now has a tax efficient ISA manged for her by Raymond James Cardiff with no worries over the daily market movements. She monitors performance regularly and can watch the funds grow over the years. She knows help and assistance is at the end of the phone and can always request a face to face meeting as required.
