Investments & Wealth Planning

The Tilly Bailey & Irvine Investment Management Department provides discretionary management of individual portfolios for private investors, trusts, pension funds (including SIPPs and SSAS) and charities.  Current funds under management are around £50m.

Every client is different and their objectives, requirements and attitudes to risk differ. We provide a flexible approach, tailored to meet the client’s needs. The service which we provide may entail products with risk exposure. Our success is due to the strong personal relationships which we develop with clients and the high quality of our staff. The core team has been together for over a decade and have an average of twenty years experience in the securities industry.

Our services include:

  • Discretionary portfolio management including ISAs - As portfolio managers we engage with you, ascertain your risk profile and then invest your capital with complete discretion (within prescribed limits). For individual clients (as opposed to SIPP, trusts and charities) we incorporate stocks and shares ISAs.
  • Full nominee service - shares or investments need not be registered in the name of the beneficial owner and they are often pooled together to ease the process of buying and selling as well as administration of dividends etc. This is now standard practice in the industry. 
  • Automated income payments - Often clients like to receive an income from their portfolio and we can set up an electronic automatic payment into their bank account on a monthly or quarterly basis.
  • Full Capital Gains Tax service - We liaise with clients every year to try and avoid paying any unnecessary CGT.       
  • Consolidated tax certificates - At the end of every tax year we produce a tax pack for use by our clients or their accountants to help complete their annual tax return. 

We provide individual client reports twice a year and liaise with your accountants, IFAs and other professional contacts where necessary.  Although the investments are managed by the investment team, the close involvement of the firm’s private client lawyers can maintain the connection between a client’s financial and legal affairs.  The department prides itself on its administration and investment performance, over the long term. We are members of the WMA (Wealth Management Association).
