Financial AdviceFuture Vision Financial Advisers specialise in providing strategic financial and investment advice to clients. The Future Vision Financial Advisers philosophy is to provide advice driven solutions not transaction driven solutions.
Whether the issue for a client be review and management of an existing Investment Portfolio, advice on the investment of capital newly received, advice on Debt Management, advice on the acquisition of a property or business, advice with respect to Ownership Structures or advice with respect to the development of a broad strategic plan tailored for your individual situations, Future Vision Financial Advisers can assist. Future Vision Financial Advisers specialise in Wealth Creation. Despite the publicity given to those who achieve fabulous wealth relatively quickly, the facts are that most private wealth is created slowly and incrementally over a long period of time. The basic principles of a Wealth Creation Plan are as follows:
- Have a Plan
- To spend less than one’s earnings
- To have in place a logical, well thought out investment strategy that is consistent
Wealth ManagementFuture Vision Financial Advisers have a long history of experience in Wealth Management.
Our prime objectives in this area are to assist our clients in protecting the value of the present assets and to grow those assets further in a manner consistent with the clientʼs objectives and risk profile. A key component of Wealth Management is asset allocation (how capital is spread between different asset classes) and diversification ( how capital is spread within each asset class). Future Vision Financial Advisers can assist you in developing a wealth management plan and provide ongoing professional advice and assistance with this plan into the future.
Private BankingOur Private Banking Service is a Future Vision Financial Advisers flagship service and is based on the centuries old European concept of skilled Financial Advisers providing high quality financial input to private clients.
The objective of this service is to add significant value to the overall financial position of our clients and to help our client’s achieve personal satisfaction as a result of achieving financial / business / personal goals and objectives. It is our observation that most people obtain financial advice on a piece meal basis from their banker, accountant, lawyer, sharebroker, life insurance adviser, friends and colleagues. There is often no common thread running between these various advisory relationships and the resulting advice is fragmented and often perplexing. In contrast to this situation, our Private Banking clients have focus and fully understand the steps they need to achieve their objectives. Our Private Banking is a comprehensive, fee for service programme, that encompasses virtually all aspects of one’s financial and investment planning position, as well as personal goal setting and family objectives. The Private Banker takes a total overview approach to the clients situation and develops, in conjunction with the client, a broad strategic plan that is aimed to deliver a clearly defined set of outcome. This plan is monitored and reviewed on a regular basis. This strategic plan encompasses all or some of the following issues:
- Cash Management
- Debt Management
- Risk Management
- Investment Planning
- Estate Planning
- Asset Protection
- Tax Planning
- Planning for family and leisure time.

Estate PlanningHaving built up wealth throughout one’s life, the challenge is to leave a tidy Estate situation.
Estate Planning is an area that does require expert advice and a well thought out logical plan. A good Estate Plan will effectively:
- Protect family assets from the State and other potential creditors.
- Transfer wealth through to the next generation in a fair and equitable way.
- Minimise the risk of litigation brought about by disaffected family members.
