BLACKTOWER FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT GAINS ACCESS TO PANAMA MARKET

International investment and financial planning firm, Blacktower Financial Management Group, announces the launch of its offering in Panama.

Gibraltar, 10th October 2022

Blacktower Financial Management Group, providers of individual and corporate financial planning, has today announced that they are now licensed to offer their bespoke services in Panama. This follows the recent acquisition of a full broker dealer licence for their Cayman entity and the group’s expansion into Swiss and Australian markets this time last year.

Blacktower asserts that their full range of services, including overseas pensions advice, tax planning and wealth management, will be available to both residents and expats, after acquiring the regulatory and licensing requirements needed to operate in this region.

Blacktower have also delineated the opportunity this presents for their IFA network, Nexus Global, which was established back in 2010. Group Managing Director, Gavin Pluck, states that ‘it can be incredibly challenging for advisers and smaller wealth management firms to gain access to smaller markets such as Panama; this expansion is not only significant in Blacktower’s development, but it also represents a pivotal moment in the evolution of our IFA network and offers a real opportunity to those operating under our regulatory umbrella’.

Chairman and founder of both Blacktower and Nexus, John Westwood,  adds that ‘Panama, whilst small, is a valuable addition to our regulatory footprint. It has proved itself to be one of the fastest growing economies in the last decade,doubling its income per capita. With our Cayman entity just across the Caribbean sea, it is incredibly encouraging to see Blacktower cementing its presence in this part of the world and illustrates our ongoing expansion outside of Europe in to regions such as LATAM.

Experts are warning that this period of opportunity cannot continue forever, as it is expected that the Spanish economy will soon rebound from a recent period of trouble with what is anticipated to be a marked and prolonged period of prosperity.

Pensions may strengthen for the younger generation

Pound coinsIt’s never too early to start saving for a pension – you’ve no doubt heard that one before, perhaps while searching for pension advice online or in news reports on the financial future of pensioners in this country.

Hopefully, you took note of it and started saving as soon as you possibly could, thinking of your retirement planning long before other milestones such as getting married or having children. Maybe you left it a little later. Either way, solid financial planning, which may involve pension transfer advice from a professional financial adviser, should help you make secure financial decisions.

Young workers today don’t need to have someone to remind them that they should be saving for retirement thanks to auto-enrolment, which is a scheme that makes sure, unless they choose to opt out, all workers pay part of their salary into a private pension scheme. As almost everyone could do with starting their retirement saving as early as possible, auto-enrolment is a great idea, and now it appears that it could be the main factor in the improvement of future pension incomes, settling fears that some young savers may have regarding the prosperity of their long-term future.
