1-hour Wednesday – March 21st 2018 – The Zuckerberg Suite, Yours Business Networks, 18 Tuesday Market Place, King’s Lynn.
Hosted by Swarm Hive and sponsored by Yours Business Networks
A seminar designed to allow enterprising business owners and managers to network with like-minded people in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere – networking at a reasonable hour of the day, without the referrals, pressure, and cost of some networking groups, finishing in time to allow for a normal day’s business.
We’re really excited that, included in the hour, we have an exciting guest, Adrian Nicholls from Ring Associates, who focuses on how to protect your business as it grows.
Ring Associates are an independent financial planning and wealth management business based on the Tuesday Market Place in Kings Lynn. they have an experienced team of Financial Advisors who have been providing advice to the local community on a wide range of financial matters since 2002. They believe in equipping people with the financial knowledge and freedom to live their desired lifestyle. Good financial planning advice, in our view, is about setting realistic objectives so that you can achieve your goals.
Above all they believe in making good quality financial advice accessible to everyone, taking the time to find out about you and your individual circumstances, allowing them to provide a bespoke, tailored solution, rather than adopting a “one size fits all” approach. They will help you to work out what you really want from life and then build a financial framework to help you get there. Having put a customised plan in place, we will review it regularly to make sure everything remains on track.
We can assist you with advice on investments, life assurance, critical illness cover, income protection, retirement planning, trust planning, group pensions and we have access to the whole of the mortgage market to choose from.
We have strong relationships with other professionals across the local area and can work in conjunction with them to help create a complete plan for your financial future.
How do you protect your business as it grows through its life cycle?
Start-up – young
- 4 out of 10 businesses fail in the first 5 years. The predominant reason for this is cash flow and the issues that can cause. There are many reasons for poor cash flow but one of the hardest to cope with (at any stage of the business life cycle) is the death or serious illness of a key employee or shareholder
Established – Middle-aged
- Established businesses have more and more regulatory commitments and often now the business owner may find it harder to find suitable advice whether it be on HR matters, health and safety or areas such as company pensions. As banks and building societies have less or in most case no advisers then business owners need somewhere else to turn
Mature – Senior Citizen
- Succession planning as owners/director’s approach retirement is essential. The smooth transition is vital to maintaining confidence internally and to external parties. The correct planning can help this be seamless and to leave both the retiring members and ‘new’ board to take over with a clean break
