The Neil Gayler & Co. Story
Neil Gayler & Co. was established in 1997 as an Independent Financial Advisory practice. In June 2019, our regulated advice business was sold to the FA92 Group Ltd. who formed a new business, NG Wealth, to look after the regulated advice needs of our clients. Neil is retained by NG Wealth as a consultant under the title “Client Relationship Manager”. He is responsible for any strategic planning and financial modelling that may be required prior to the appropriate regulated advice being provided by his colleagues. He is also able to assist when called upon for his expertise in financial matters relating to Later Life and Long-Term Care Fees funding, and his specialist knowledge in Tax Planning.
Neil Gayler & Co. continues to trade offering "non-regulated" advice, the financial planning service comprising Strategic Planning, Life-Centred Financial Planning and Cashflow Modelling. The Estate Planning service includes the drafting of Wills, Powers of Attorney and Trusts. Part of the Later Life expert guidance is a new service, "Making Life Simple", which is aimed at helping people who are financially disorganised to get their affairs in order and to make sure they keep on top of things. More detail on this service can be found here: www.makinglifesimple.co.uk.
