Following clients of Beaufort Financial Plus Ltd who joined us last year, we’re delighted to welcome the clients of Beaufort Financial Planning (Mansfield) Ltd into Investment & Retirement Solutions Ltd.
Although Investment & Retirement Solutions Ltd is a separate legal entity, from a practical view, nothing changes for these clients other than the company name.
Future correspondence from the Beaufort Mansfield team will be branded Investment & Retirement Solutions, but you’ll still be dealing with the same people, on the same phone numbers in the same locations.
Paul H, Managing Director of Beaufort Financial Planning (Mansfield) Ltd became a shareholding director of Investment & Retirement Solutions Ltd earlier this year. Our business has a direct relationship with our regulator, the Financial Conduct Authority, removing the need for the regulatory ‘umbrella’ which has been provided so well by the Beaufort Group.
Our shareholding directors have known each other for over 40 years and believe this is a positive step for the business, but more importantly, a positive step for clients.
How? & your protections
Today, 1st November, we start a legal process (novation) to transfer our clients and the responsibilities for their ongoing care from Beaufort Financial Planning (Mansfield) Ltd to Investment & Retirement Solutions Ltd.
This novation process means your existing contractual rights and our corresponding obligations transfer without any changes.
Over the coming weeks, Beaufort Financial Planning (Mansfield) clients are likely to receive notifications from your providers confirming Investment & Retirement Solutions is your “new financial adviser”; please get in touch with your usual contact, or any other member of our team if you have queries about any correspondence you receive, or if you want to understand a little more about what’s happening.
What’s happening with the Beaufort Mansfield firm?
Nothing; Beaufort Financial Planning (Mansfield) Ltd will still sit there in the background. At some point, over the next few weeks, it will deregister as a regulated entity and in recognition of leaving the Beaufort family, a change of name will be proposed to the Registrar of Companies in due course.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any queries.
