  2. Stephanie has continued to build a good reputation for her work with Pensions in Divorce, where many people who finalise their divorces in the UK usually with the help of a solicitor or barrister are often left to fend for themselves with regards to where and how their pension sharing orders should be invested.
  3. Verity Wealth Management believes every one should have access to proper Independent Financial Advice especially, where families are concerned, and we work on behalf of our clients to ensure they receive the best and most cost effective deals currently available on the market from the Life Companies, Pension and Mortgage Providers for their financial requirements.
  4. Anyone thinking of taking their pension or annuity from their existing provider should look first to see if they can enhance their pension or annuity payment by using the "Open Market Option"  provision especially, where someone has had health problems, or taken medication in the past.
  5. Verity Wealth Management LLP has access to dynamic daily research, up to day product information for Life Products, Pension, Investment and Mortgages, and we have access to many provider specific online systems which ensures proper research is carried out on behalf of our clients before any recommendation is made.
