Privacy Statement

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.

LHW takes it’s responsibilities under the Data Protection legislation very seriously and we take great care to ensure that our client’s personal/financial data is treated appropriately and confidentially. 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. Without this information, these 3rd party service providers may be unable to complete and issue the required contracts which would mean that they may be unable to provide you with the services required.

  • Only collect your data where this is necessary in order for us to provide you with the services
    we offer.
