investment planning

Supporting your investment journey

Securing your business’s future

Finding new ways to boost your revenue is essential for the long-term success of your business, and exploring investment opportunities is one of the most effective approaches you can take. Corporate investing is a way to put any surplus cash from your business to good use. Instead of keeping your company's money locked away in a bank, you can hold a portion of it to generate additional revenue. This gives your surplus cash the chance to grow and be reinvested in your organisation. Of course, there are a lot of different investment opportunities out there and it can be challenging to know where to start - which is why it’s always a good idea to talk with the experts first.

Lester Brunt’s team of financial advisers are here to support you throughout your investment journey. We’ll take the time to understand your organisation's specific situation, objectives, and risk tolerance, and use this insight to develop a range of strategies that align with your financial goals. Even after you’ve put your investment strategies in place, our advisers will continue to monitor and manage your business's wealth. This is so we can adapt our recommendations to match your organisation's changing circumstances.

How we work

Why venture into corporate investing?

As a business owner, you have the flexibility to pay yourself through dividends or a salary - however, withdrawing too much from your business account can result in significant tax liabilities. On the other hand, if you allow profits to accumulate in your business account, they’ll remain idle and won't be working to contribute towards the growth of your company.

Corporate investing is a smart and tax-efficient solution to both problems. It lets you put your company funds to good use, without them being categorised as immediate income. You can then use the funds you bring in to streamline your operations and help to grow your company to new heights. If you decide that you wish to test the waters of corporate investing, our advisers are here to help. They’ll guide you in everything from transferring funds to making carefully considered investments, all while ensuring compliance with your company's memorandum and articles of association (MAA). You’ll be left with total confidence that you’re on the right track to success.

The value of an investment with St. James's Place will be directly linked to the performance of the funds selected and the value may therefore fall as well as rise. You may get back less than you invested.
An investment in equities does not provide the security of capital associated with a deposit account with a bank or building society, as the value & income may fall as well as rise.

The levels and bases of taxation, and reliefs from taxation, can change at any time. The value of any tax relief depends on individual circumstances.

Investing in their future:

Less well-known is that children can also have a pension fund as soon as they are born – and setting one up can bring significant tax advantages. Even if your child is a non-taxpayer, they will still get basic-rate tax relief on contributions. That means a maximum of £2,880 a year is automatically grossed up to take account of tax at 25%, giving an annual investment of £3,600
