Adrian Taylor specialises in fund placement, wealth preservation and inheritance tax planning. He recently said that philanthropy is becoming a popular, tax-efficient option for HNWs to pass on their wealth, and he is increasingly asked to assist clients in establishing charitable foundations. ‘It’s a win-win if you can direct it to the right places,’ he says. He has also told us that ‘client concerns are my concerns,’ and that he enjoys the challenge of solving problems before they come to a head. While Taylor is based in Wilkins Kennedy’s Guildford office, the accountancy and business advisory services firm has 16 other offices across the country. The firm is a market leader in taxation services, transaction support and advising owner-managed businesses.
