Henson Aslam Financial Management LLP was founded in 1994 by Nicholas Aslam and Valerie Elliott-Haig and is based in the West Bridgford area of Nottingham.
We are independent financial advisers and provide help for our clients in all areas of financial planning including investments, pensions, family and business protection, Cashflow forecasting and estate planning needs.
Nicholas Aslam, the senior partner, has been in Financial Services since 1984 in various roles. Prior to starting the business Nick spent 6 years with a major national independent adviser as senior consultant for the East and South East Midlands with specific responsibility for corporate and high net worth pension and investment business.
In particular Nick specialises in pension advice to individuals, business owners and directors. We advise on a large number of self-administered/self-invested pension schemes, giving the pension owner freedom to invest in any acceptable asset including commercial property. We also advise a large number of individuals on personal and tax-efficient investments, including Inheritance tax planning.
Nick holds the Chartered Insurance Institute G60 Advanced Financial Planning Certificate pension specialist qualification. This qualification is held by a small minority of financial advisers and enables the holder to give advice on pension opt-out and transfers. Nick also holds the Personal Finance Society Diploma qualification.
