Financial News Update we 26/11/2010

I guess we won’t speak too much about the cricket this morning but I will remain optimistic as ever!…

A healthy mix of both estate planning and long term care articles this week – some being contentious in their nature – and I have included one on what is known as the Rysaffe principle as it is something many are unaware of but can prove advantageous in terms of IHT for those affected.

As I mentioned a few weeks ago, the care sector does appear to be seeing a resurgence of interest with a couple of new centenarians celebrating and the age old debate on how self funders will manage continues – something I am sure will not rescind any time soon.

Dublin’s problems have also been well documented and the UK’s position means we have to assist where we can – a case of “damned if we do and damned if we don’t”?
