About us

One of my client’s is a GP. We first met around 6-7 years ago. The first thing he said to me was; “The average life expectancy of a GP who works until they are 65 is 18 months. I’m not working until I’m 65!”

And the good news is he won’t be! We have put together a plan using all of his assets and structured them in such a way that he and his partner will stop work in March 2022 when he will be just 55.

They are already planning their road trip around Europe.
