We caught up with Paul Lewis, consumer champion, award-winning journalist and host of BBC
Radio 4’s Moneybox, for his views on financial abuse.
“Frenkel Topping is my kind of independent financial adviser – very, very cautious.”
Chairing the London Deputy Day 2019 conference has really opened my eyes to the very serious and shockingly widespread issue of financial abuse.
There is a growing army of people – well-meaning or otherwise – who have agreed to take on power of attorney for a relative or friend, but don’t understand the serious legal duties and onerous responsibilities it brings. They probably have no medical training to understand whether the person
they represent has capacity, and no legal training to judge what their duties and responsibilities are.
Frenkel Topping (LON:FEN) provides specialist independent financial advice focussed on asset protection for clients. The specialist independent financial adviser has a market leading position providing advice and fund management services for personal injury trusts and clinical negligence awards and is well placed to provide services to a wider customer base.
