Diane’s approach to working with you

Diane helps families and individuals who are looking ahead and want to plan efficiently for care provision and funding in the future.

She deals with a wide range of individuals in varying circumstances – from families who are thinking about an elderly relative who may need care in the future and require professional advice, to individuals who already possess funding and would like to invest any surplus wisely in order to leave an inheritance for loved ones.

When clients come to Ashlea we adopt a holistic, tailored approach to their circumstances exploring the options available to them. Detailed cash flow analysis is at the heart of our advice process. This enables us to work out how much available capital is needed to fund the fees on an ongoing basis. Many people have pension income which can form part of the fees planning. Once the shortfall has been established we can then determine how much is needed to buy an annuity to give peace of mind in funding the care. It might be possible to link this with a diversified portfolio of assets to provide for a top up of fees income and the potential for any surplus to be left to the family. Where income is not a problem and care fees are easily afforded we look at estate planning in more detail to see if we can shelter assets from inheritance tax to ensure they’re protected for relatives and future generations.

We are based in Cheltenham and, as we offer a personal service, we generally like to invite clients to come and meet with us at our offices. We will visit elderly clients at home if that is their preference. We are open to enquiries nationwide from clients who are happy to use Skype or Internet communication technology.
