Some of our main services include financial planning, retirement planning, tax planning, income protection, and investment & portfolio management. Our team of amazing financial advisors are sure to help you with any issues you are facing.

Where is our location?

Middlesbrough is a large town in North Yorkshire, England. It is on the River Tees’s southern bank, west of Redcar and east of Stockton-on-Tees. The Borough of Middlesbrough is governed from the town. Until the early 1800s, the area was rural farming land. Our offices are located here:

What is financial planning?

Financial planning is a process to help you with your financial issues. Our financial planning services at Joslin Rhodes Middlesbrough are important to you as they will help you to support your current needs and plan a safer future for you and your family. Our financial advisers will help you reach your current money needs and your future goals. We will help you reach your desired financially comfortable future through budgeting, investing, tax planning, and other services.

What is the retirement age in the UK?

You can access your state pension from the age of 66. However, you can access your private or workplace pension from the age of 55. It is important to note there are a lot of other factors that come into when you can retire.

What is tax planning?

Tax planning is the process of analysing a financial situation to ensure all elements are working together in the most efficient way. Often these elements are not working well together and result in people paying more unnecessary money in taxes.

What is investment management?

Investment management is the process of handling financial assets and investments. Our team of independent financial advisers will devise a long or short-term plan for these assets and investments.

What does a financial advisor do?

Joslin Rhodes independent financial advisers make sure your money is being managed in the best way possible. Our financial advisers will meet with you in person to discuss your financial goals, educate you (the client) on your options and help to plan for your specific future.

Are financial advisors trustworthy?

The FCA, Financial Conduct Authority, is a regulatory body that monitors activity from financial advisors. Joslin Rhodes is regulated by the FCA to protect the consumer. We’re qualified, regulated Independent Financial Advisers, and we’re also nice people who want to make your future financial journey meet your needs, whatever they may be.

Who needs financial planning?

Simply put everyone needs financial planning. Financial planning is extremely important as it helps you to keep track of your income, expenses, and investments. This plan will make sure your money and assets are being taken advantage of. One key impact you will see from having one of our financial plans is an increase in your savings. By utilising this plan you will be able to manage your money in a much clearer and more effective way. For example, costs can be cut down in certain areas and put into savings.

What benefits come with financial planning?

There are many advantages that come with financial planning, a few of these are:

-Reduced stress

-Financial security

-Efficient use of current assets

-Improved standard of living

-Preparation for the future, whether that is unemployment or illness

Why is tax planning important?

Tax planning can often result in less money going towards taxes. With many of our clients, we find a much larger sum of money is going towards taxes when it doesn’t need to be. Planning helps to create a level of understanding between the government and the taxpayer. Furthermore, tax planning can result in economic stability, with more money available for personal use.
