LHW Financial Planning Ltd (LHW) provides a full range of financial planning and advisory services to our clients. The provision of these services requires LHW to collect personal information including financial information in order to ensure that we can correctly arrange certain services such as the setting up of protection and investment plans. This information may also be needed so that we can provide ongoing financial planning advice to our clients.

However, it is often necessary for LHW to share your data with 3rd parties such as insurance companies and investment managers in order to provide services such as life insurance, pensions and investments.

One such topic would be the management of investment risk.
