Clare Maurice has found herself in the rather unusual position of struggling to right the gender imbalance of her female-centric company. ‘I think… women are attracted to MTG because it’s run by successful women,’ she says. ‘The real challenge has been dealing with clients who come to us with all manner of questions which we simply haven’t been able to answer.’ She believes one consequence of the UK election result is that the general trajectory of lower corporate tax rates and predictable inheritance tax relief has been called into question. Maurice is cheerful about the ‘political tangle’ in which we find ourselves, as she is confident that her small and ‘nimble’ firm is well positioned.
