How we can help you pay for care
Long-term care is one of the biggest financial commitments you can make. Many people opt to use their savings and investments to finance care, but it is usually worth getting financial advice beforehand to ensure that care fees can always be met, and that you can pass on as much of your estate as possible.
John Lamb Wealth Management provide financial planning and investment advice (also known as wealth management) to individuals and family groups, helping them to plan and achieve their financial goals. We like to build long-term relationships and some families have been working with John Lamb for more than 50 years.
As a medium-sized firm of financial experts and advisers, we are large enough to offer a depth of expertise across a broad spectrum of financial matters, whilst at the same time small enough to be able to deliver an attentive level of service and develop a close working relationship with our clients based on trust and integrity. We provide a flexible service with a fair and clear fee structure.
