"I signed up to trial your new i4C cashflow modelling tool today and I thought it would be good to give a bit of constructive feedback..... I loaded in all of my own data which I really found very easy and you can tell this thing has been designed by financial planners – lots of extra boxes that are relevant and informative – without a complete soup of boxes to complete. In short – I really like this tool. It is intuitive, diligent and clearly designed by professional financial planners."

I hope you don’t mind but I signed up to trial your new i4C cashflow modelling tool today and I thought it would be good to give a bit of constructive feedback. I love the initial interface when you sign in. It is fresh and immediately obvious (even to an old man like me!) I really found reassurance in the double security of sending you an authentication code when you try and log in. This meets GDPR worries that Financial Planning firms may have and it made me feel comfortable to actually enter data to really take the thing by...

"By using i4C the lawyers as deputy could demonstrate they had considered all options and taken appropriate advice prior to finalising their investment decisions."

Jonny is 10 years old and is in poor health with reduced life expectancy due to complications when he was born.

"The turning point for our business was when i4C proved to us that a cashflow planning tool could be effortless and trustworthy."

"Knowing my decision-making has been based on a thorough process that has been stress-tested by i4C gives me and my wife so much peace of mind. "

Roger and his wife are in poor health. Roger has recently undergone the process of transferring his pension out of a defined benefit scheme to safeguard the potential to pass on value to his children on death. He has recently taken early redundancy and been living on cash savings rather than drawing on his pension whilst he assesses what his and his wife’s actual expenditure levels are.  He has estimated this at £25,000 annually which leaves them with a shortfall of circa £10,000 per year over the next 9 years before their state pensions become available.

"Tom was impressed by the impact of demonstrating the affordability of making pension contributions and the impact of not making them."

Tom was referred to a firm that uses i4C - initially for pension planning advice and most specifically on how to structure his income in retirement. Tom owned significant levels of commercial property but few liquid assets. He also owned a share of a trading business which was valued at approximately £4m. Whilst working he had sufficient income from the trading business to cover his expenditure but that would cease on retirement. He has a pension valued at c.£1m to access as required alongside the full state pension
