Meet The Team

Darren and Jason have 45 years of experience between them advising in financial services.

Elmwood Financial Consulting the friendly local financial advice firm, with the financial strength of being an appointed representative of Positive Solutions. The Positive Solutions network is owned by Quilter (previously Old Mutual Group).

The value of pensions and investments and the income they produce can fall as well as rise. You may get back less than you invested.

Transferring out of a Final Salary scheme is unlikely to be in the best interests of most people.

EIS, VCTs and BPR invest in assets that are high risk and can be difficult to sell such as shares in unlisted companies. The value of the investment and the income from it can fall as well as rise and investors may not get back what they originally invested, even taking into account the tax benefits.

Tax treatment varies according to individual circumstances and is subject to change.
