Welcome to 2018!

We hope that this year is filled with happiness and success!

We kick off our first newsletter for 2018 with a guide to help you make most of your financial opportunities this year. And, we provide some simple but handy tips for saving for those dream holidays.

We have included a financial checklist to help you kick-start 2018. Robin Bowerman, from Vanguard, provides an interesting insight into the topic of trust.

Our final article looks at the events that may trigger a need to review your estate plan.
