Week in review – Friday 27th March 2015
As the end of the tax year draws ever closer, it’s been a little quieter this week in terms of new content from the Informed Choice team.
Here is our week in review:
Following his comments in the Sunday Times last weekend (see below!), Martin wrote about changes to the funding of long term care.
The latest official price inflation figures show inflation, as measured by the Consumer Prices Index (CPI), now stands at…zero! We explain what this means for the economy, investment markets and your Financial Planning.
Episode 16 of the Informed Choice Podcast went live this morning. We talk about ‘noflation’, answer a listener question about keeping his large inheritance a secret, and share some end of tax year planning tips.
Martin comments in the Sunday Times about reforms to long-term care funding and talks about the range of quotations for an immediate needs care annuity, based on his recent experience developing a care fees plan for a local client.
Martin comments for FT Adviser on data from City law firm Reynolds Porter Chamberlain suggesting the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) s166 reviews are not cost-effective, as only 2 per cent result in regulatory enforcement action.
Financial Planner, the official magazine of the Institute of Financial Planning (IFP) feature a business profile about Martin.
Nick comments in FT Adviser about the recently invoiced Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) interim levy, which cost Informed Choice around £3,400 to compensate poor advice provided by others!
Writing for other advisers on the new Nucleus Illuminate website, Martin explains the marketing importance of blogs, podcasts and videos.
