When someone talks about savings and saving money, it could be referring to a piggy bank on the mantelpiece or a high interest deposit account. Savings are effectively cash or cash instruments, such as deposit accounts, term bonds etc.
Wealth Preservation
/content/wealth-preservation-1
introduction-to-wealth-management
Wealth, just like your health, must be carefully preserved. Your assets need to be protected against the potential threats of erosion by taxation, the effects of inflation and investment risks.
Long Term Care

The whole process of dealing with an elderly relative who needs care can be difficult, emotive and stressful. At Prosper we specialise in giving advice on Long Term Care solutions by working closely with the family members concerned.
Pensions

introduction-to-pensions
When you retire you still need food and shelter as an absolute minimum, but of course you will want to maintain the lifestyle to which you have become accustomed, so unless you can guarantee a large inheritance or windfall, then you need to provide yourself with a secure income for the rest of your life.
