What can Worldwide’s independent financial advisers do for me?

Firstly you will be appointed with your own dedicated independent financial adviser.

Your independent financial adviser will listen to you in confidence and study your entire financial position. This is the most important part of the planning process to ensure we are fully aware of your current financial situation, your individual needs and aspirations, and requirements for financial security.

Before any fees are even considered, we will decide if we can help.

We are a truly Independent Financial Adviser firm and offer access to every solution in the market place. Your dedicated independent financial adviser will then design a financial plan for your financial security, and after implementation, will create a review programme to suit your needs and achieve your financial security.

Lynne Williams
DipPFS

Location Truro

Categories Financial Planning, Inheritance Tax, Investment, Life Insurance Advice, Long Term Care, Pension

Lynne started her financial career in 1993 with the Alliance & Leicester before moving to HSBC Bank plc as a Financial Planning Manager.

Finding that the products and services were increasingly restrictive she decided to become an independent financial adviser, thus allowing her clients access to the whole marketplace.

Lynne specialises in financial planning throughout different stages of life, arranging protection, investment, retirement, and inheritance tax solutions and is now qualified to give advice on long-term care needs.

Paying too much tax is her pet hate, so she explores different ways of helping you plan to avoid this.

When not studying she has been a bit of an adrenaline junkie, having done a tandem parachute jump, zip wire, abseiling and climbing for charity.

Willing to give anything a try at least once Lynne is a qualified Padi Open Water diver, but now prefers coastal walking with golden labrador Stanley.
