Brownlow Wealth Management Ltd

James Rudd and Ian Bush run a Partner Practice of St. James’s Place Wealth Management, offering face to face practical advice and financial solutions for those considering long term care options from offices in Hertfordshire and West Sussex.

We specialise in advising on the complex area of care fees planning. We help individuals that need care together with their families, understand the implications of care requirements with an emphasis on straightforward solutions to the costs of paying for care.

We advise on the most appropriate funding solutions, backed by years of experience in this field, whatever your care fees needs. The care fees solutions we provide aim to make the most of your money to ensure that care fees will always be met, and as much of the estate as possible is protected for future inheritance.

We offer a no obligation consultation. We will contact you to discuss your specific circumstances in more detail, before presenting a report tailored to your needs.

Consider all of the options and their consequences before making any decisions

As Care Fees Planning specialists who are accredited by The Society of Later Life Advisers (SOLLA) we can show you whether it is possible to secure care at the first choice of home for the rest of the individual’s life. This can give all the family peace of mind that care fees are being met indefinitely, that they will not run out of money and fall into the hands of the Local Authority.
