The price we pay for excellence

Education is expensive in any country that has a reputation for excellence. The trend is set to continue as education standards improve and employers demand for higher quality graduates increase. Education fees in these countries have risen well above the rate of inflation and it is believed they will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.

How can Montpelier help make education more affordable?

Financial Planning Expertise

The process begins with an honest and open conversation regarding your current financial status. It’s important for our advisors to fully understand our clients goals and objectives enabling us to perform a comprehensive analysis of their situation.

Overall Financial Outlook

We first look at your final objectives, the overall costs of Education fees, living expenses and accommodation for your children. How much would this actually be taking into account inflation and projected market trends? Would it be an astute decision to buy a property for your children to stay in rather than rent? Could letting a property contribute towards their education fees? Do you have a current savings that could provide higher returns invested in an EDU account? Would an offshore account invested in GBP, USD, AUD or SGD which provides tax free returns be a preferred option?
