What is managing another person’s assets?

You are managing another person’s assets. These assets are likely to be held in a Trust, or you have been appointed Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) or act as a Deputy.  You are required to protect the interests of another person, so you will have a number of duties and responsibilities and would benefit from the advice of a qualified professional. You will be looking to ensure that you are making the right decisions for the beneficiary’s financial future and are avoiding any costly mistakes.

  • How can you cope with your legal duties and responsibilities?
  • How can you make the right decisions for the benefit of those for whom you are responsible?
  • How can you make the assets for which you are responsible last as long as possible?
  • How can you make smart investment decisions?

Our financial planning process
The Prosper financial planning process

The discovery meeting allows us to find out about you and also helps you to decide if you want to work with us. We ask a series of questions to understand what’s important to you, and what your primary goals are for the future.  We use visualisations to explain the Financial Planning process so you can evaluate how it could benefit you.  We send you a Service Proposal to explore the issues from this meeting and explain how our service will work for you.

In the fact find meeting we gather the data we need to understand your finances. We conduct a comprehensive data analysis of your income, expenses, assets, and liabilities, so we can examine current and future spending patterns. We need comprehensive details to fully evaluate your position so we can plan for your future. We help you to make sense of your money and fill in any gaps in your data. We will follow up with further queries to your product providers.

Your financial plan examines your current finances, based on reasonable assumptions about the future. We assess possible gaps in your planning you might not consider, so you can be in a more secure position. We compare the current position with different scenarios, so you will immediately see the benefits of any improvements we have recommended. This is a highly collaborative and interactive stage and puts you at the centre of your financial decisions.

Your financial plan will give you a series of recommendations to improve your financial security, and also work towards a better lifestyle. With a clear financial plan in place to achieve your goals, we can implement an investment management portfolio or arrange any appropriate financial products to meet any needs we identify. We'll do the administration so you can sit back and relax as we work hard to help you achieve the life of your dreams.

Reviewing your financial plan


You will receive regular contact from us with investment valuations every 3 months (although you also get access to our portal for daily valuations if you prefer). You will be offered at least one annual meeting to review your Financial Plan and investment portfolio, making the necessary adjustments for your current circumstances so that you remain on track to achieve your goals. We'll also update you with tax data, and make sure you use tax allowances as early as possible for maximum benefit.
